Biography

Elissa Hult is a student in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology pursuing her PhD. Her professional career interests lie in engaging with the health professions in an advisor capacity, such as a medical science liaison, drug or product consultant, or being involved in conducting clinical trials. She hopes to fulfill both her personal interests and professional goals from the courses that the Precision Health Graduate Certificate Program has to offer. As a physiologist, she is accustomed to thinking of biology as a multi­faceted entity where the effects seen in one cell type or organ system may be highly dependent on a process that seems otherwise unrelated (not unlike the holistic view of Precision Medicine itself). She enjoys learning about different facets of health with particular interest in health policy, epidemiology and translational medicine.
