"My lab is interested in natural products. In other words, we're interested in molecules that we get from nature. If you go to a hospital and you look at the list of drugs they prescribe to patients, you'll find that roughly 75 percent of those are derived from natural products. Those drugs are not something that chemists have invented. They're made from molecules that we've borrowed from nature."

"There’s a lot of collaboration here, and that’s kind of amazing when you consider that it’s a graduate school in a big city. You’re not all living in the same area and you’re not all on the same schedule, but as we settled in, it was a very collaborative environment. There’s a great sense of community in the program and that was great because in the health care profession you’re rarely, if ever, working on your own; you have to work with people in teams, so it was helpful to learn the curriculum that way."
