  • Biology Alumnus Elevit Perez '17

I attended Marymount Manhattan College from 2012-2017 and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in chemistry. MMC allowed me to establish close and lasting relationships with my professors through an intimate and challenging learning environment. When faced with challenges throughout the rigorous curriculum, I never hesitated to find help and guidance amongst my professors and peers. The support I received allowed me to reach my full potential in my studies and in my personal life. During my time at MMC, I was involved in computational research under the guidance of Dr. Sampoli. Throughout this experience, I gained invaluable knowledge on molecular dynamics, making scientific posters, and public speaking by presenting the research at various conferences. My thesis awarded me the accolade of Honors in Biology. As a result of my hard work and support I received throughout my undergraduate years, I am currently working as a research technician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where I am able to apply lab techniques and skills from my education and hands-on experience at MMC. It was an honor to be taught and work alongside such brilliant educators.
