MSTP Alumna, Christina Theodoris, Featured in Circulation Research

One of our recent graduates, Christina Theodoris, was featured in the May 26th issue of Circulation Research. From the article:

Christina Theodoris earned her BS in Biology at the California Institute of Technology and is currently pursuing her MD/PhD at the University of California, San Francisco, in Developmental and Stem Cell Biology. She is a student researcher at the Deepak Srivastava laboratory at Gladstone Institutes, focusing on gene regulatory networks and their disruption in cardiac disease to identify targets for network-correcting therapies. As an artist and a scientist, Christina endeavors to strike a balance between her 2 passions, using her experiences in art to move forward through the setbacks and missteps that are an accepted part of the scientific process as, after all, “there are no mistakes in art.”

You can read the complete article on the Circulation Research website. Congratulations to Christina who will be continuing her training in Pediatrics-Medical Genetics at the Boston Combined Residency Program/Harvard Medical School in Boston!
