Nataliya Pryimych is a post-undergraduate student in the Gamero lab. She received her B.S. in Biology from Temple University in 2020. She is currently continuing a project she worked on as an undergraduate student to further investigate the pro-inflammatory effects of STAT2 in inflammatory bowel disease and psoriasis. She enjoys cooking, hiking, and tutoring. She plans to attend graduate school in the biomedical field.
Jorge Canar is a PhD student in the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine (LKSOM). Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, he received his B.A. in Biological Sciences in 2018 from Hunter College. His PhD project is to investigate a subset of STAT2 mutations found in human cancer for their effects in tumorigenesis and inflammation. Before coming to Temple University, he studied the p53 ortholog, CEP-1, in C. elegans and the effect of a gain-of-function CEP-1 on lifespan and hyperproliferation. Outside the lab, he enjoys listening to alternative rock music, playing soccer and volleyball with friends and family. He loves traveling to new places, and his favorite classical Greek literature work is The Republic by Plato.
Kennedy Darling (class of 2023) is an undergraduate biology major and Spanish minor at Temple University. Kennedy’s research interests include the role of STAT2 in the immune response as well as carcinogenesis. Post-graduation, Kennedy hopes to attend medical school and continue work in the field of biomedical research.
Geohaira Sosa (class of 2024) is currently a medical student at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. She is also pursuing an MA in Urban Bioethics in conjunction with her MD. Other commitments include serving as Block Representative and as Temple’s Latino Medical Student Association Mentorship Chair. In her spare time, she loves to paint, enjoys documentaries and tending to her plants and cozying up at home. Though still deciding, she is currently interested in exploring Pediatrics-Gastroenterology.
Phillip Duodu (class of 2024) just completed his first year of medical school at LKSOM. He is from Edison, NJ and graduated from Rutgers University in 2019 with a B.A. in the Biological Sciences. He worked in a local deli for a year before attending medical school, so he considers himself somewhat of a sandwich expert. He is studying the role of STAT2 in colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. In his spare time, he loves to play and watch soccer, biking, video games, watching documentaries and exploring new places.
Amy Alvarado (class of 2022) is an undergraduate biology major and Spanish minor at Temple University. She is a Latina/Hispanic first-generation college student. After graduation, she plans on doing more biomedical research and clinical work before applying to medical school. In her free time, she likes to practice and teach yoga. She also enjoys exploring different restaurants in the city (She’s a big foodie). She grew up in a somewhat musical family with so, she learned to play the piano and flute at a young age. She is a little rusty now, but she'd like to revisit that hobby sometime soon.
Ryan Dadey (class of 2023) is an undergraduate biology major at Temple University. He is currently working on a project involving STAT-2’s affect on colorectal cancer and tumorigenesis. Ryan hopes to attend medical school after graduation in the pursuit of oncology.
