Why Feinberg?

A New Home for Research

Northwestern University has made an extraordinary committment to growing our biomedical research enterprise. In 2019, the opening of the Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Biomedical Research Center added 629,000 square feet of new space dedicated to scientific inquiry into cancer, heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's, diabetes and other areas where we need more knowledge and answers to inform medical treatment.

Virginia Gallagher, Clinical Psychlgy PhD Prgram

Virginia Gallagher, Clinical Psychology PhD Program

The best part has been working with my research mentor, James Reilly. He strikes the perfect balance of providing sound guidance and expertise based on his years of experience as a clinician and scientist in neuropsychology but also allows, and encourages me, to pursue my own hypotheses and work with a sense of independence.

Nahan Waldeck, Driskill Gradae Prgram in Life Sciences

Nathan Waldeck, Driskill Graduate Program in Life Sciences

The strong research reputation of Northwestern is originally what attracted me to the program. I had particular interest in the DGP because of the translational research focus of many of the labs. Once I attended my interview weekend and saw the thriving research campus located in the middle of downtown Chicago, I was sold.

The faculty at Feinberg have been extremely supportive of me as an aspiring physician-scientist and parent. They have been there for me through both failed and successful experiments, every grant submission, challenging and rewarding patient cases on the wards, as well as through the milestones of my growing family. I know these mentoring relationships will last a lifetime.
