Nick obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology (2013) followed by a Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB) degree (2016) from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana. He then practiced clinical medicine from 2016 to 2019, initially as a Physician Intern and later as a General Practitioner (equivalent of Family Physician) while still in Ghana. As a first step in pursuit of his dream to become a physician-scientist in future, Nick then studied for an MSc Medical Sciences degree at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom where he performed bioinformatic proteomics research under the supervision of Professor Matthias Trost and Dr José Luis Marin Rubio from 2019 to 2020. His masters research involved the proteome analysis of E3-Ubiquitin Ligase Dtx3l knockdown macrophage cell line following treatment with pro- and anti-inflammatory stimuli. In January 2021, he began his Physiology PhD studies with concentration in Reproductive Sciences here at Wayne State University School of Medicine. He joined the Mor lab later that year and his PhD research focuses on the application of bioinformatics and machine learning to understanding mechanisms underlying ovarian cancer recurrence and prognostic biomarker discovery.
Anthony received his bachelor’s degree in molecular biology and biotechnology from the University of Michigan in 2017. Afterwards, he completed his master’s degree in molecular biology from the University of Michigan in 2019. His research focused on understanding the maturation and trafficking of a family of serine proteases called proprotein convertases, which are highly relevant in cancer biology. In 2019, Anthony began his PhD in the Physiology department at Wayne State University. Shortly after, he started on the reproductive science concentration and joined the Mor lab. His studies currently focus on how inflammation from viral infections affects the development of the fetal immune system, which can lead to various outcomes such as asthma, allergies, vaccine sensitivity, or susceptibility to infections.
MD / PhD Student
Annie graduated from Scripps College in 2017 with a BA in Neuroscience and Art History. She is currently an MD/PhD student studying the effects of maternal inflammation on hematopoietic stem cell differentiation pathways along the placenta-brain axis. Her research interests include developmental biology, neuroinflammation, and reproductive immunology. In her free time, she enjoys going on runs, travelling, and spending time with her bunny!
