Alumni Spotlights

Don E. Davis Jr. ’21 (McLean Lab)

Scientist, Janssen Pharmaceuticals

“The graduate program in the Department of Chemistry at Vanderbilt University is an excellent environment for advancing scientific curiosity. My scientific development was mainly due to being mentored efficiently, having access to a wealth of knowledge/resources, and experiencing collaborative inquiry consistently. In addition, Vanderbilt is located next door to its medical center and in the heart of Nashville, which gives its students many professional and personal/social development options both within and outside of Vanderbilt’s campus. Therefore, I think the opportunities at the graduate program in the Department of Chemistry at Vanderbilt University are essential for developing the next generation of scientific leaders.”

Kelly M. Craft ’18 (Townsend Lab)

Senior Scientist, AbbVie Pharmaceuticals

“The biggest impact of the graduate program in chemistry is that it helped me settle on a career path (one which I didn’t know I wanted to pursue until my time in the Townsend lab). The department introduced me to a highly collaborative environment between biologists and chemists and showed me how fruitful these collaborations can be in research. I was given the opportunity to do research outside my primary discipline—which helped me become an effective communicator and enhanced my scientific writing and reading skills.”

Michael W. Danneman ’16 (Johnston Lab)

Senior Scientist, Discovery Chemistry, Moderna Therapeutics

 “The Department of Chemistry at Vanderbilt University offers a top-quality education along with exciting research opportunities. The knowledge base that was established during my time at Vanderbilt allowed me to reach my full potential to become the best possible scientist I could be. My exposure to the cutting-edge research within the Vanderbilt Department of Chemistry taught me effective problem-solving skill that I still use, professionally, to this day.”

Leila F. Deravi ’09 (Wright Lab)

Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Northeastern University

“Matriculating through the chemistry Ph.D. program at Vanderbilt was a great experience for me. In many ways, it gave me my first taste of what it takes to do translational science and the power behind building the right team in accomplishing these goals. At Vanderbilt, I got the opportunity and freedom to engage with multiple faculty and graduate students across science and engineering to help accomplish my research goals. This experience helped to propel me into my own independent career as a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Northeastern University, where I try to provide my own students and postdocs with similar opportunities in building their careers.”
