Erika DavidsonLab Technician
Years: 2021 - 2022
Next Position: Medical Student at University of Buffalo
Erika is a Buffalo native, with a BS in Chemistry from Baldwin Wallace University. She worked as an EMT through the COVID pandemic to help people and gain experience working in health care. While the work was very interesting, she soon realized that she missed conducting medical research. She joined the Bajaj lab to grow as an academic researcher and hone her experimental skills. Excitingly, she will be attending Medical School at University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in the fall of 2022 to pursue a career as a physician.
Outside of the lab she enjoys many different hobbies. She is an avid hiker and has climbed 11 out of the 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks and looks forward to eventually hiking them all! She loves snowboarding, camping, reading, going out with friends, and following her favorite NFL team, GO BILLS!! Rochester, NY offers plenty of extracurricular activities that she enjoys, including the nation’s largest adult kickball league, trivia nights, and an incredible selection of restaurants to try. If you have any questions regarding her time working in the lab or throughout my career becoming a physician, please feel free to reach out!
