Elelta Sisay is a senior at Pomona College, majoring in Molecular Biology. Her chemistry courses in high school were what lit a spark in her and started her fascination with biochemical pathways and biomedical research. Courses in cell biology and medical anthropology in college further drew her towards biomedical research and public health research addressing health disparities.
She is interested in pursuing an MD/PhD after college to pursue a career as a
physician-scientist. Outside of class, she is a member of her school’s cross-country team and enjoys reading, writing, and drinking coffee. Through ToxMSDT, Elelta hopes to gain further exposure to the various fields of toxicology.
Elelta Sisay is being mentored by Christina de Zafra.
