Justin is a current fourth year medical student at Duke University School of Medicine. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he majored in Health Policy and Management and minored in Chemistry.

He is staying at Duke to complete his residency training in General Surgery and hopes to pursue a fellowship in Cardiothoracic Surgery.

Academically, Justin has an interest in thoracic oncology and tumor immunology. Ultimately, he hopes to work towards the creation of novel therapeutic modalities for late-stage lung and esophageal cancers. His research efforts in graduate and medical school have resulted in several presentations at national meetings and multiple peer-reviewed journal publications.
