A Scientist Returns to a First Love

An athlete, artist, writer and scientist, Claire Oh allowed her disparate passions to guide her career. Her undergraduate bioengineering studies at Cornell University exposed her to the use of nanoparticles to target cancer cells, ultimately inspiring her decision to earn her PhD in pharmacology at Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences. As she looks ahead, Oh considers what it will mean to trade in her pipette for a pen as a medical writer for a healthcare advertising agency.
