Louise comes to the the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from the University of Pennsylvania, where she majored in Biology with a minor in Fine Arts. After two years at the National Institutes of Health working as an Intramural Research Training Award recipient, she matriculated into the MD/PhD program in 2016.

While at Mount Sinai, Louise completed her PhD in Immunology in the laboratory of Dr. Dusan Bogunovic, dissecting immune dysregulation in Down syndrome. Louise’s work resulted in five first-author publications and several presentations at national conferences, earning her the Young Investigator Award from the Mindich Child Health and Development Institute. Throughout her training, Louise has been committed to teaching and served as a teaching assistant in five medical and graduate courses and supported several trainees in the laboratory. She has also volunteered at Kravis Children’s Hospital and in the Child Adolescent Psychiatric Unit at Morningside Hospital.

Louise would like to thank her mentor Dusan Bogunovic, her laboratory peers and friends in the MSTP program, the immunology department, and the MSTP leadership for their guidance and support. She would also like to thank her family, friends, and Ken Schindler for their unwavering encouragement and for making the world such an exciting place to explore.

Louise will graduate with his MD/PhD dual degree and continue to residency in Pediatrics at Children’s Hospital; she aspires to become a physician-scientist.
