Count me in. Though not 100% sure, I think I am going for it. Not looking forward to the application process. Oh, and I am not applying for basic sciences, but for public health/epidemiology.
Good luck y'all.

Jot- I graduated last year, so this summer I'm doing what I always do. Which is work. I do research at Mass General.

Princess- What's up with all those hosers hitting on you in the Pre-Allopathic forum? Did someone post a picture of you? It wouldn't load on my browser...darn. Anyway, I too would like some of these people to look at my personal statement. We should start an exchange, but only by private message. No, better yet, email. I'll have a showable version later this week, but I'm stuck in the 6500 word range. Darn again.

Hi all. I am 2003 amcas MD/PhD. I am primarily interested in the fusion between immunological/molecular cancer research and natural products chemistry/pharmacognosy. I love working with cancer patients, and I think I want to become active in clinical trials research. I have always known that I want to be a lab based scientist, but since working in clinical reserach for the past year, I am convinced that an MD/PhD will give me the broad base of knowledge I need to perform meaningful research. Anyways, thats me. For those who have not posted their interests, please do so. I am looking forward to meeting many of you face to face in the future (willing we all rock the house!)

Wow! I'm a lot like you, Isidella - I want to do clinical trials, and test out new drugs. My dad has cancer, so it's interesting learning about how drugs get approved.

For example, IL-2 only works for &lt;10% of cancer patients, yet for many cancers it's the only treatment available. Sucks huh?

Sometimes it seems like once a drug has been FDA-approved, they try to make sure it still has a market, even when it's old and proven to be virtually ineffective.

zephyr_97:

I'm curious, is MSTP now offering a PhD in public health/epidemiology? If not, what programs are you applying to? Feel free to PM me if you don't want to spam the whole bb.

Cheers
