It all began with a chick heart. During her undergraduate years at the University of Rochester, Kareen Coulombe teamed up with a post-doctoral fellow on a research project that examined the embryonic development of a chicken heart. The study fascinated her and kick-started more than a decade of research on that essential organ: “It stirred my interest in pursuing a PhD because of the depth of what would be required to investigate such a complex problem.”
