Paul Riegelhaupt is a M.D./Ph.D. candidate in the laboratory of Dr. Myles Akabas. 

Why I Chose Einstein  

I liked the idea of doing research that had a close tie to clinical medicine.

Favorite Story About My Research  

I had a fairly ambitious, high-risk project. I toiled away for two years and wasn’t getting too far. I was hanging out with a friend in another lab, and we started discussing ideas we could do together. Over the course of two weeks, we came up with my thesis project and actually started a collaboration without necessarily having approval from our bosses. It’s stuff my lab has never done before—my P.I. will probably end up writing a grant on it.

Best Thing About Being a Student at Einstein  

The curriculum makes sense. It is focused on you becoming a scientist. The qualifying exam is earlier in the Ph.D., forcing you to get an idea early on of where things are headed and preventing you from being aimless in the lab.
