From Rwanda to Hanover

For the past two years, as part of the Rwandan Human Resources for Health program, Dr. Jean-Luc Nkurikiyimfura has been collaborating with faculty at the Geisel School of Medicine despite working and living thousands of miles away.

Geisel MD-PhD student Cindy Hahn is researching new therapeutic strategies for blood diseases such as sickle cell.

Being Creative with Sickle Cell Disease

When Cindy Hahn was a young girl, her father, a virologist, used to let her sit at his microscope and look at immune cells fighting a pig virus. Watching that pig virus sparked a passion for science she is now pursuing as an MD-PhD student.
