POUYA JOOLHARZADEH, MD – CLASS OF 2019
The first September that I was a new faculty member I was riding the bus home and overheard two first year medical students discussing how one goes about finding a research lab. I turned around and handed them by card and said, I’m looking for students. A few months later Pouya emailed me and soon joined our team. He graduated May 2019, and his excellent research was recognized with an Outstanding Longitudinal Research Project Award!. He is now off to Wash U in St. Louis for his residency. Contratulations Pouya!
