Why I chose Pitt

I originally chose to apply to Pitt due to the varied stem cell, aging, and DNA damage repair research groups on campus. I chose to come here after touring the city, the facilities, and meeting some of the faculty I was interested working with.

After graduation, Stephen accepted a position in the laboratory of Dr. Li-Huei Tsai at MIT as a postdoctoral associate.
