Hallie Gaitsch is an MD/PhD student at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine MSTP. She is currently completing her PhD through the NIH Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program as a Gates Scholar at the University of Cambridge. Hallie has explored a variety of research interests throughout her education, working on projects in the fields of computational genomics, viral pathogenesis, immunology, and neuroscience. Her current work focuses on studying molecular biomarkers of remyelination in multiple sclerosis. She plans to pursue a career as a physician-scientist, combining translational research with clinical practice and teaching. Hallie graduated from Yale University in 2019 with a B.S. in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. During her time in high school, college, medical school, and graduate school, Hallie has benefited greatly from the advice and guidance of mentors and older students. She cannot imagine a more exciting career than one bridging medicine and biomedical science, and hopes she will be able to contribute to this field by helping new applicants navigate the process of reaching these next important steps in their training!
