A Message from our Founders


Getting involved in research has been one of the highlights of my university career. From learning innovative lab techniques to interacting with some of the smartest people I know, my fond memories within research can go on and on. If there is one thing that I wish I could have changed, it is that I would have started sooner. As such, myself, along with my fellow IgNITE founders, wanted to create a platform where students of all ages and experience levels could participate in some of the most fundamental aspects of research. Moreover, we wanted to create a community of IgNITE members, pushing one another to reach our full potential! I am a firm believer of being a lifelong learner and I know that the IgNITE Medical Case Competition will encourage novel approaches to some of the most pressing medical issues through research. I look forward to meeting you all and sharing our innovative solutions at IgNITE!

Medical research has been a big part of my academic journey and has given me countless opportunities to grow, not only as a scientist but as a person. Although I have had the opportunity to get involved in many cutting-edge research projects, it was not easy getting involved in my very first project. Unfortunately, this struggle is also faced by many other aspiring scientists trying to enter the academic community. Thus, we started IgNITE to create an opportunity for young scientists to take their first step in their research journey. Leading a team of brilliant students, alongside Danny, to make IgNITE a reality allows me to give back to the scientific community and play a part in shaping our future scientists and doctors. I hope to create a pivotal experience that will fuel the passion of students wanting to get involved in research and open doors for them to succeed. I truly believe that the IgNITE Medical Case Competition has the potential to change your academic journey. I look forward to meeting you all and discussing innovative solutions to current medical issues!
