One degree wasn’t enough for President’s Scholar and 2004 graduate Tiffany Link (then Tiffany Potter).
She left CSULB with a B.S. in biochemistry, a B.A. in chemistry, minors in biology and communications, and the honor of being the Outstanding Graduate in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. It’s no wonder she earned acceptance into graduate school at Yale, Cornell, Dartmouth and others before choosing Johns Hopkins’ M.D.-Ph.D. program. Come May 2012, you can address her as Dr. Link.
“I finished my Ph.D. research in Mike Caterina’s lab in March of 2010,” she said. “I am currently back in medical school, completing my clinical rotations. I am concurrently working on research in pediatric dermatology, looking at the treatment of infantile hemangiomas,” which are benign birthmark tumors. Her work earned the Hopkins’ Michael A. Shanoff Award for the best Ph.D. thesis and first author credit for a research article in the journal Nature Immunology.
Read the whole thing. Here’s my favorite part:
If that wasn’t enough, Link met her husband, Jed, when they competed as rivals at speech and debate tournaments—she for CSULB and he for USC.
Yeah, Mrs. Link pretty much rocks. That’s from the Spring 2011 CSULB Beach Review which is sent around to all the zillions of CSULB alumn.
My girl’s wicked smart!
