Ashley Bauer: On to Graduate School

Ashley Bauer

Finding her passion led Ashley Bauer to a Ph.D. program in biomedical research at Yale. Bauer has been at UMD her entire four year college career pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Cell and Molecular Biology, and has been given a lot of support as she applied to grad school. “My advisor Dr. Clay Carter and the faculty, especially my research advisors, Dr. Jeffrey Gilbert and Dr. Jean Regal, have been wonderful. This wouldn’t have been possible without support from them,” she stated. Bauer chose Yale out of five other graduate school acceptances. “Yale was right for me because they have an incredible research program. There are a lot of opportunities for me; and I really liked the environment,” said Bauer.

Bauer said from her start at UMD, she wanted to do something in the science field, and once she got into her lab, she fell in love. She stayed at UMD because she found her niche in science and research. She was able to do two undergraduate research projects through the UROP program as well as participate in the Pathways program through the medical school. "UMD is more close-knit than some larger institutions so it is easier to get to know students and faculty," she said. Bauer has been doing research on high blood pressure during pregnancy for three years and wants to continue with biomedical research after graduate school.
