Alexandria Adigun

Cohort 1

This summer, I earned an amazing opportunity to intern at the Institute of Molecular Pathology in Vienna, Austria for 9 weeks. With over 3,000 applicants, I am a part of a cohort of 28 students from around the globe and the first African-American to intern with this program in its 10 year history. Never would I have thought I would have fallen in love with research, but the Karsh STEM Scholars Program has roped me in, and I don’t think I’ll ever get unhooked! The field is diversifying in numerous ways and I’m honored to be mentored by truly dynamic people at Howard University.
