Raehannah Jamshidi, the ambassador scholar for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, earned her undergraduate degree cum laude in 2009 from Austin College in Sherman, Texas. She is an M.D./Ph.D. student and has completed the first two years of her medical education.
Graduate student Travis Block is an accidental entrepreneur. The attachment, called the MonoMano Cycling Control System, is designed to make steering and braking possible for wounded warriors, stroke survivors and other who live with deficits on one side.
Stephanie Perez, a graduate student who will be receiving her Ph.D. later this month, inspires other young South Texans to consider a career in neuroscience research.
“The recently appointed M.D./Ph.D. Program director, Dr. Jose E. Cavazos, has a strong vision for the program,” Cooney said. “The fact that students will write their own training grants, the amount of cancer research done here, and the CTRC (the Cancer Therapy & Research Center at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio) — all those things drew me here.”
