Claire Kim ‘25

Claire concentrates in Molecular & Cell Biology with plans to take a gap year in preparation for medical school applications. On campus, she is a PMP mentor of the Cornell Undergraduate Research Board, and a member of RCPRS and Rho Psi Eta, a pre-health sorority. In addition, she conducts research at the Cheong Lab where she is involved in a study aimed to understand how exosome supplementation can improve the cryotolerance of in vitro-produced embryos. In her free time, she enjoys playing tennis, window shopping, and spending time with her friends and family. Her favorite courses at Cornell have been CHEM 3570, HD 3620, and STSCI 2150. Last summer, she volunteered at her local hospital, and this summer, she plans on continuing research at Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
