Grace Mosley is a 5th-year MD-PhD student at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, located in New York City. She has completed the first two years of medical school and USMLE Step 1, and is currently working on a neuroscience PhD in the Iatridis Lab in the Department of Orthopaedics, where her research focuses on sex differences in low back pain. Before attending graduate school, she graduated cum laude with a BS in neuroscience from Rhodes College in 2014.
Grace loves helping educate people (especially in science!) and has experience in both teaching and science outreach. As an undergraduate, she tutored for her college’s general chemistry course and helped to run the chemistry department stockroom. At Mount Sinai, she is the head teaching assistant for the medical school’s combined anatomy, histology, and embryology course. Grace has helped run the MedStart Enrichment Program, a science and medicine focused summer camp for middle school students, and has discussed her research and experiences as a graduate student with middle and high school classrooms through the Skype A Scientist program.
Outside of school, Grace can be found training for her next marathon, seeing live music, or eating her way around New York.
