Omayma and her research are the subject of this Faculty Spotlight.
What brought you to MSU and Family Medicine?
I came to MSU in 2013 as a postdoctoral researcher. I was lucky to be working with a great mentor, who thinks 10 years ahead. I was encouraged to seek definitive answers for my research questions, even if this means a new training in a new discipline. I then started animal research training at MSU. I was excited to apply for the position advertised by the department of Family Medicine. The department mission aligns perfectly with my goal of advancing population health. Moreover, the department houses outstanding faculty with nationally and internationally recognized expertise. So glad to be here!
