BioHello! My name is Haille and I'm in my 3rd year of the MD/PhD program at Dartmouth. This means that I have completed my first two years of medical school and am currently getting my PhD in molecular and cellular biology, where my research is focused on helping to make radiation for cancer treatment less toxic to the brain in kids. Aside from school, I love mountain biking, snowboarding and really anything that involves getting outside and I have a Great Pyrenees pup named Zoose.
