I chose IU because of the large volume of cases which covers all major areas in neuropathology such as tumors, eye, muscle and forensic cases. Also, the neurodegenerative research center have an amazing and large collection of cases. The faculty are so supportive, and the program atmosphere is very nice. 

Outside work, I like to hike, cook, and discover new places in Indy.

Devon L. Jackson, MD

I was very impressed by the supportive faculty and staff at IU. They clearly cared about my interests and goals. I also knew I would become very knowledgeable in neuropathology here due to the large and wide variety of cases obtained through the surgical service and the neurodegenerative disease research center. Overall, the atmosphere is very friendly and conducive to learning.

Outside of work, I love music, singing, movies, and going on road trips. I am excited to explore new areas in Indy.

Lauren Franco, PhD

I was drawn to the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at IU School of Medicine because of the broad area that the clinical microbiology lab covers, the unique research opportunities, and the excellent mentorship. I am particularly interested in antibiotic resistance and stewardship and the intersection of hospital clinical labs with public health labs.
Outside of the work, I enjoy camping and hiking with my family, baking, and gardening.
