Allison came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from Christopher Newport University, where she majored in Cell and Molecular Biology. She entered the Biomedical Sciences PhD program in 2016, joining Dr. Robert Krauss’s lab to study muscle stem cell regulation.
While at Sinai, Allison earned a predoctoral fellowship, won multiple awards and academic achievements, and published three papers in peer-reviewed journals. Outside of the lab, Allison served as President of the Mount Sinai Science Policy Group and volunteered as a representative in graduate school admissions and various student leadership committees. She participated in graduate school education as a teaching assistant for five years and a guest instructor for the last three.
Allison would like to thank her family, friends, colleagues, and mentors at Sinai, all of whom have made the last six years an incredibly fun and fulfilling experience.
Allison will graduate with her PhD and continue her academic training as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University.
