Why are you passionate about the Clinic?
The Clinic struck me as a unique opportunity to combine my skills in the laboratory with a motivation to serve. As I learned more, I felt excited to become a part of a team which combines patient care and genetic research to improve the quality of life for a vulnerable population.
