Introducing Amanda Essoh, 1st Year Medical Sciences PhD Student

Amanda Essoh

What degrees do you hold and from what institutions?

I have a Bachelors of Science degree in chemistry with a biochemistry concentration and a minor in biology from Lamar University.

What excites you about joining Texas A&M College of Medicine for your PhD studies?

I was thrilled to join the A&M COM summer research internship and I am even happier to accept a position as a Ph.D. student. During my undergraduate degree in chemistry, my plans were always to pursue medical research and I now find myself positioned perfectly for this goal.

If you could meet any scientist throughout history, who would you want to meet and why?

Out of all the DWG's, I'd meet Carl Sagan, hands down!

Tell us something you are passionate about apart from research.

As a passionate person, it is hard to choose one thing, however, the family I have created with my partner and three pups takes precedent.
