Eneda Toska ('09 U, Biology), recently contacted Dr. Brian Witz to update him on her adventures after graduating from Nazareth College.
After graduation, Eneda was off to the University at Buffalo where she graduated with a M.S. in Molecular, Cellular and Cancer Biology. She then stayed at the University at Buffalo for a PhD in Molecular, Cellular and Cancer Biology. She will defend her thesis late November 2013 and will then be off to New York City to begin a post doc at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Eneda's research has been published in Oncogene and Cell Reports. Links to these publications are below:

In her letter updating us Eneda wrote,"Thank you so much Dr.Witz. Naz gave me a great education and foundations which I extensively used at UB." We congratulated Eneda on her accomplishments and hope she keeps in touch.
