Adrienne Boire, Biochemistry, 2004

"I am terribly grateful for the training that I received at Tufts. My career path was a little non-traditional, but I ended up exactly where I wanted to be: running a lab as a physician-scientist, studying a disease in my lab and in my clinic. I am terribly happy! Of course I am more than willing to help out our community in any way that I can- please do not hesitate to call on me if needed."

Adrienne is an Assistant Member in the Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

"Earning a Ph.D. at Tufts is a rewarding experience in many ways; the didactic coursework brings you up to speed on the latest scientific technologies, the close working relationship with Tufts Medical Center and the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development provides valuable perspectives on the larger healthcare industry, and the location in the heart of Boston offers access to the most vibrant innovation ecosystem in the world"

"I wanted to take the time to thank you for all of your mentorship while I was a student and a postdoc at Tufts (oh and I cant forget PREP!). The emphasis that you have on offering career path development is so important and makes a huge impact on the student body. The workshop with Sarah has been vital for me finding and landing my dream job here at Promega."

Michaela Tolman, Neuroscience, 2018

"What to watch in the world of graduate biomedical education? Dean Daniel Jay. I (almost) wish I were at the beginning of my graduate student career again, just to take part in all of the great opportunities he is supporting at our school. If you want to help fuel discovery, invest in young scientists."

I" just read your letter in "The Goods" today, and I wanted to write and say "thank you" for all that you are doing to drive the school forward through focusing on core skills that really allows a community develop and become stronger. I truly appreciate that you are making changes to the school from the inside out to help Tufts build the reputation of scientific excellence through strong mentorship. I cannot tell you how many times I thought "YES!" to myself as I was reading your letter today. I have so much respect for your ability to challenge people to self reflect and think beyond our comfort zone, enabling us to grow into better versions of ourselves. So thank you so much for all that you are doing!"
