Dr. Annette Gilchrist
About this episode
Originally, Annette wanted to be a medical doctor but as luck has it, she didn’t get into medical school when she first applied. Instead, she discovered research and started her Ph.D. the day she should have started medical school. Dr. Gilchrist completed her Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences / Immunology at the University of Connecticut and went on to become a postdoctoral fellow at UIC (University of Illinois at Chicago). Annette worked in industry, academia and her entrepreneurial side led her to three companies, Cue Biotech, Caden Biosciences, and MyGenomeRx in addition to being a consultant for over a decade. Dr. Gilchrist is also an associate professor at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
