Derek Sung, a third year CPM MD/PhD student in Mark Kahn’s lab, has found a unique way to showcase his appreciation for how beautiful cells can be - he runs the popular Instagram account, @Immunofluorescence. Derek utilizes immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy to study vascular biology and development during hematopoiesis, and in the placenta. He was first introduced to these techniques while working at the Laboratory of Molecular Cardiology at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute at the NIH, and was particularly drawn to its inherent artistry. “Knowing the nuances in staining and imaging makes it as much of an art as a science,” he says.

Since beginning graduate school, I have been a part of the Graduate Training in Medical Science (GTMS) Certificate Program. The GTMS program integrates focused medical education and experience into the doctoral curriculum, giving Ph.D. students insight into the integration of lab and clinic. Started in 2006 and funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the program was so successful that Penn decided to keep it going after the three-year pilot grant ended.

Directed by Dr. Hao Shen and Dr. Jonathan Katz, the rigorous program focuses on training basic scientists to have a clearer understanding of human biology and pathology through clinically relevant re...

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...
