Medical School: Duke
Amy graduated from Winthrop University with a Bachelor of Science degree double-majoring in Biology and Biochemistry. She then matriculated into the MD/PhD program at Duke University. Her PhD thesis investigated the role of the hedgehog signaling cascade in tumor-associated macrophages and immunosuppression in the tumor microenvironment. Her work led her to further explore interactions between the immune system and pathologic entities beyond cancer, including the connections between the integumentary and immune systems. After completion of her preliminary year in medicine, Amy will begin her Dermatology residency at Duke University. She is excited to join her husband who is a PGY4 neurosurgery resident at UNC. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, traveling, cross-stitching, true crime podcasts, and playing the piano with her daughter.
