Featured here are the current second years of both sections. This was taken before they started residency. Many things have changed since then. Relationships. Friendships. BMI. Haircuts. But the love for the neurosciences remains. They are all, with the guidance of the attendings, still saving lives, one brain at a time. Come join the team.
