Adam is from the NYC area, but moved up to the Great White North (Canada) for his undergraduate studies in Honours Biochemistry at McGill University in Montreal. He graduated with a 4.8/5.0 GPA, along with extensive research in neurodegenerative diseases and genetic engineering. After university, he returned to New York and worked for two years at Rockefeller University in a stem cell and human embryology laboratory. He is currently an MD-PhD candidate at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Having finished his two pre-clinical years of medical school (and taken his boards), he is now pursuing a PhD in Immunology, where he develops molecular tools based in the immune system for use in research and clinical medicine.
Adam has significant experience tutoring high school, university and medical school level sciences—from Biology 101 to Advanced Topics in Gene Therapy. He also has a strong background in molecular biology and gene therapy. With Cambridge Coaching, Adam enjoys medical and graduate school application advising and editing. He is currently a member of his medical school’s student admissions committee. Having applied from a university outside of the US, he has additional knowledge on applying to American medical schools from a non-American school, as well as the different expectations from medical and MD-PhD applicants.
Outside of his research and studies, Adam enjoys running with his pit bull (Casanova) in Central Park, film photography and hiking/camping.
