  • Biology Alumnus Elevit Perez ’17

MMC allowed me to establish close and lasting relationships with my professors through an intimate and challenging learning environment. As a result of my hard work and the support I received, I am now 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.

About

“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.”
