Alumna Story: Galini Poimenidou ‘16


Galini Poimenidou ’16 is headed to Dartmouth Medical School to pursue a Ph.D. in their exclusive PEMM (Program in Experimental & Molecular Medicine) this fall. Galini was shortlisted amongst 300 candidates to the 30 finalists for the program, and after a two-day interview in February, she was one of the 10 students accepted into the program, complete with a full ride and stipend.

The program seeks to train the next generation of scientists and physician-scientists to engage in research in genomic, proteomic, cellular, and organ-based systems for the purpose of translating this knowledge into disease treatment and prevention. 

Congratulations, Galini, for pursuing your dreams and never giving up. #pinewoodproud
