Why are you interested in helping HWI?

When I originally joined HWI Young Professionals group I was living in my hometown of Buffalo, NY and I was eager to bring awareness and community support for HWI. Since moving out of Buffalo, I still have passion for this program but especially enjoy the connection I have with the fellow young professionals and the institute. It makes me feel close to Buffalo and I am proud to help make a difference.

Why does research matter to you?

For me, it is about the people that research does and will help. Research is essential to uncover what works best for patients and to improve the quality of life for those living with illness. HWI is a leading force in structural biology to improve health and uncover the cures for tomorrow.
