Graduate Program

Emilie Bouda, BA

  • Biography

My name is Emilie Bouda, originally from Burkina Faso, West Africa where I received my High school Diploma. I received a BA in Biochemistry from Hunter College, CUNY in Spring 2015. I had the opportunity of conducting research at Brown University last summer, where we explored a potential novel target for treating Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. I came into the Pharmacology Program at Stony Brook with an open mind to try different research topics in cancer and cardiovascular diseases. I am now leaning toward research leading into the discovery of novel targets as well as new drugs for cancer treatment. I would like to be able to contribute to fighting drug resistance in cancer therapeutics.

My hobbies include camping during the summer, cooking and singing during my free time.
