Margaret Hill, PhD, MS
I had many great opportunities during my time at University of Rochester. I was able to present my research, my mentor encouraged me to think creatively and forge my own path, and it was exciting — all of — the late nights on the confocal microscope, the high-pressure presentations, the failures, and the successes. The closer I came to deciding I was ready to defend my thesis, however, the more I realized something was missing. I started the process wanting to help those affected by cancer, but it took my PhD training to make me realize that I wanted to help these patients in a more tangible way. Thus, began my search for a career where I could directly interact with patients and their families.
