Cira Cardaci

Class of 2018

Cira was excited to create a working prototype and challenge herself to a join a technical environment without an engineering background at MTM, following her Biopsychology Bachelor’s at Wagner College. 

MTM is a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience assessing clinical needs and to understand medical device development and commercialization pathways. MTM sparked and fostered my passion for product development and innovative technology commercialization.

She has since gone on to cofound MenoPal, Inc., and held positions as Assistant Manager at New York City Regional Innovation Network,  Adjunct Instructor at National Science Foundation Innovation Corps, and is currently an Adjunct lecturer at The City College of New York and a Manager at New York I-Corps Hub. 

Bo Guan

Class of 2018

Bo attended MTM between completing his degree in Biomedical Sciences at the Sophie Davis Program in the City College of New York and completing medical school at Downstate.

MTM had been a great experience in every way that taught me so much about the process. of biomedical innovation and the intersection between science, medicine, and business. My journey in MTM has taken a brief pause due to the last five years of medical school clinicals and residency, but I am sure I will return. When I do, I feel well equipped to do so due to all the connections and knowledge I have acquired during the program.

Currently, Bo is in his last year of residency in Emergency Medicine at Northwell and will be an Emergency Medicine Attending in the San Antonio/ Austin region with an interest in TeleHealth and Biomedical Innovations.

Delcora Campbell

Class of 2021

After obtaining her Bachelor’s in Cell and Molecular Biology at CUNY John Jay College, Delcora enrolled in MTM as it provides the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the biotech industry. 

I knew it was a program that would give me the opportunity to interact with professionals in their specialties, allowing me to acquire real-life experiences. I knew attending MTM would allow me to break glass ceilings and blaze the translational medicine trail, which is very necessary, especially in gaining the ability to translate medicine from bench to bedside.

Since graduating from MTM’s humbling and electrifying program, Delcora has gone on to pursue a career in the biotech industry as a Research Associate II at RenBio and is also currently an MBA candidate at Fordham University, Gabelli School of Business. 

Chivell Mendoza

Class of 2021

Upon completing her degree in Biomedical Sciences at CUNY Medgar Evers College, Chivell believed that MTM would help her ascertain knowledge in scientific research and innovation.

MTM was the pivot point in my career. It was just the experience I needed to steer me in the right direction. The Transitional Medicine program combines biomedical science, innovation, and research with disciplines, resources, expertise, and techniques for the purpose of applying to medical practices. All of which I needed to develop in my respective field.

Since graduating from the program, she is now a Senior Research Coordinator and Genetic Counselor Assistant at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, where she is the lead on a Genetic Transplant Research Study. She is also currently pursuing a second Executive Master’s in Epidemiology at Columbia University.

Evan Azoulay

Class of 2016

Evan joined MTM to develop his technical skills further and understand the other factors besides engineering that go into making a successful product. With a background in Biomedical Engineering and his passion for rapid prototyping, Evan went on to support the MTM program post-graduation as the BioDesign Mentor and an Adjunct Lecturer for a few years. He then rejoined the BME department at CCNY as a Ph.D. Student in 2020.

Working closely with a diverse team on an intensive design project, along with regular presentation-style updates, prepared me for working in academia and in my current role as a Ph.D. student.

His current research focuses on assessing atherosclerotic plaque and arterial tissue material properties and tracking plaque development over time.

Wasem Khalid

Class of 2020

Why did you choose the MTM program at CCNY?

During undergrad I was able to experience many facets of engineering design and manufacturing through my coursework and various project at an academic and personal capacity. What I was not able to experience was how a project becomes more than just a token that gets left in a dark room once it is built. MTM allowed me to experience the other half of engineering which encompasses the remaining aspects of the medical device industry such as the clinical, marketing and regulatory branches.

Sadiq Rahman

Class of 2017

How did MTM prepare you for where you are now?

MTM helped me understand that there is always more to know and innovative solutions we haven’t thought of yet. When I become a physician, I will always have an eye towards how we can work with other disciplines to best help our patients.
