Kwame is an outgoing and laidback teacher that has worked with Bell Curves for a little over two years as an SAT instructor. He has recently received his Ph.D. from NYU in a topic that clarifies the biological and biochemical characterizations of T-cell leukemia/lymphoma initiation. Throughout his academic ‘career’ he has worked as an academic tutor in the sciences for high school and college students. He typically works with grassroots companies/organizations that serve underrepresented students. While perusing his doctorate, Kwame has served as student co-president of the Sackler Biomedical Institute of NYU, worked as a peer tutor, and is an active member of the Future Science Educators (FSE). Currently, Kwame serves as a post doctoral fellow at Weill Cornell Medical College where he is researching the role that cancer stem cells play in cancers of the oral cavity and the role of retinoids (vitamin A derivates) have in embryonic stem cell development. When Kwame is not on the laboratory bench or in the classroom, he spends his spare time biking, exploring new places in New York City, and spending time with his New York City “family.”
