MD/PhD/MD-PhD Student Panel

Our panel will consist of current MD-PhD student Olivia Maguire, current PhD student Camir Ricketts and OY as well as MD student Joshua Adjei. Olivia Maguire received her BA from NYU in 2013, where she majored in biology. After working as a technician in a laboratory at NYU Medical Center, she joined the Tri-Institutional MD-PhD program of Weill Cornell Medicine, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Rockefeller University. She is in her fourth year of the program and is currently working toward her PhD in the Laboratory of Molecular Metabolism at Rockefeller University. Her PhD research is focused on understanding the pathophysiology of treatment-related late effects, including metabolic disease, in survivors of pediatric cancers. Olivia’s career goal is to become a physician-scientist who addresses clinically relevant questions in the laboratory with the purpose of translating basic scientific findings into treatments that improve patients’ lives. Camir Ricketts was born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica. In 2011, he left Jamaica to attend the University of Georgia where he studied Microbiology and Computer Science. While at UGA, he conducted research in Microbiology and successfully published his work on Mycoplasma Gallisepticum vaccine strains. He then decided that he wanted to pursue cancer research at the next level and that led him to join the Tri-Institutional Computational Biology and Medicine Program at Weill Cornell where he now works on questions surrounding cancer evolution and structural variations within tumors in the Hajirasouliha Lab. He is also currently the chair of the Tri-I Minority Society at Weill Cornell, Memorial Sloan Kettering and Rockefeller and plays a very active role in championing diversity at Weill Cornell. OY Adesifayo is a Clark University student currently in her 5th year of her pursuit of a PhD in immunology. Joshua Adjei is an MD Candidate, Class of 2018 at the Weill Cornell Medical College.
