Drew University Class of 2024 Outcomes: Grace Solomon C’24

Pursuing a PhD in Molecular Biology at New York Medical College

May 2024 – As Drew University’s 2024 Commencement nears, we’re taking a look at where some of our outstanding soon-to-be-grads are headed.

A biochemistry & molecular biology major with a minor in neuroscience, Grace Solomon C’24 is the founder and president of Empowerment in STEM Club, president of Gamma Sigma Epsilon (GSE) Chemistry Honors Society, vice president of TriBeta Biological Honors Society, corresponding editor for The Drew Review, member of Nu Rho Psi Neuroscience Honors Society, member of Phi Beta Kappa, a Baldwin Honors Scholar, teaching assistant, peer tutor and writing specialist at the Center for Academic Excellence, and a tour guide for Admissions. She also participated in the Tropical Marine Ecology shortTREC to Belize and received the Novartis Award in Science – Biochemistry at the 2024 CLA Awards.

Where she’s headed:
Solomon will continue her education at New York Medical College to earn her PhD in molecular biology. 

On her time at Drew:
“Programs like
Research Institute for Scientists Emeriti (RISE) and Drew Summer Science Institute (DSSI) are the reason why I decided to pursue a PhD! They allowed me to figure out very early on that I was passionate about research, and the relationships I formed with faculty and staff made it so much easier to navigate the scientific world, one that I was entirely unfamiliar with. Truly, my mentors are the reason why I won grants, was accepted to REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) programs, presented at national conferences, and made it into graduate school! They shaped my Drew experience for the better, and I’m so grateful for all they’ve done for me.”
