WSU McNair Alumna: Cristal Reyna Thompson, PhD
Dr. Cristal Reyna Thompson
PhD, Biological Sciences, University of Notre Dame
Post Doctoral Fellow, Boston University
McNair helped me achieve confidence in myself and reach out for opportunities that have allowed me to pave my own road to success. As the first person in my family to attend and graduate from a four-year university and continue on to graduate school, I understand that I am creating a legacy for my younger family to follow. I encourage students who are interested in graduate school to take a calculated leap of faith and push yourself past even your own expectations.
