Traditionally, the format of the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) consists of two years of medical school, approximately four years of graduate school, and another two years of medical school. However, Karla Leavens, M.D., Ph.D. is proof that the traditional path is not the only route to achieve a dual degree.

Although Karla always liked research, she did not consider pursuing a career in medicine until her senior year of college when she became interested in endocrinology. However, she did not apply to medical school at the time because she had already committed to attend graduate school the upcoming fall. Karla joined the CPM program in CAMB wh...

As early as the 19th century, Walther Flemming and other biologists knew that a complex of genetic material and proteins—what we now refer to as chromatin—condenses during cell division. In fact, it was the condensed nature of mitotic chromosomes that enabled their visualization under a standard light microscope. Fast forward to the mid 20th century during the era of molecular genetics: early biochemical assays showed a severe reduction in RNA production during mitosis. More recently, antibody-based protein localization assays have indicated that most proteins involved in gene expression, such as RNA polymerase II and transcription factors (TFs), are larg...

More biologists, myself included, are using computational approaches to analyze large data sets and now wrestle withfinding the best system to document these analyses and their results. We are adept at recording wet-lab experiments using a “traditional” lab notebook; however, keeping track of computation work comes with new sets of challenges. Unlike wet-lab work, where it can take several days to repeat an experiment, a computational analysis can often be rerun in minutes. It may even be  possible to run multiple perturbations of an analysis in a single afternoon. Thus, one challenge with computational work is to keep track of why you are running a given...

Aleksandra (Leksa) Nall was a GGR student in Amita Sehgal’s lab, where she used small molecules to study sleep regulation in Drosophila.  She defended her thesis in July 2014 and was hired as a medical writer at Articulate Science the following October.

Located in Hamilton, New Jersey, Articulate Science is a premier medical communications agency division of Nucleus Global. Medical communications agencies provide a variety of services to a diverse range of clients, but are most often utilized by pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device companies. The agencies design and deliver customized products to be used for patient education, sales representative t...
