Natalie Joe Inducted into Bouchet Society
Natalie Joe, a Ph.D. candidate in cellular and molecular medicine, is one of five Johns Hopkins University Ph.D. students inducted into the Bouchet Society. The society celebrates students who exemplify academic and personal excellence, allowing them to connect with a network of scholars. Joe’s research focuses on anti-cancer treatments, specifically advancing therapeutics in triple-negative breast cancer through the repurposing of an antiparasitic drug. While completing her Ph.D., Joe earned the Teaching Academy certification and volunteered to co-teach science sessions to elementary school students. She aims to eventually use her experience to direct a program to empower the next generation of indigenous scientists.
