Why we love living and working in Columbus

“After 10 years of training in Maryland and at the National Institutes of Health, my husband and I felt that we reached the point that this is the right time for us to go to the right place and work with the right people—live our dreams. And Columbus is moving full-speed toward so many great opportunities, and we just want to be part of it.”
