Jessica Toothaker, PhD
Why did you choose the University of Pittsburgh?
I was attracted to Pittsburgh by the research being done in my field of interest across all of the UPMC, UPitt and Magee Women's Hospital research centers. I ultimately chose Pitt because of the collaborative nature of the faculty, as well as the graduate students, and liked the idea that I would have access to so many people with different specialties while working in lab.
