About Alexandra Lombardo

I am a senior attending Agnes Scott College (ASC) majoring in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology while on the pre-med track. As a student researcher at ASC, I have developed an immense admiration for biomedical research and am compelled to pursue it as a career. I hope to matriculate into a postbaccalaureate research program to further define and develop my role as a scientist beginning in the summer of 2021. During the 2022-2023 medical school application cycle, I plan to apply exclusively to MSTPs (Medical Scientist Training Programs) given that I am most interested in tackling illnesses and serving my community as a physician-scientist.

About This Site

This site is my digital portfolio, which serves to showcase my research experiences, transformative leadership as an Agnes Scott student on- and off-campus, as well as my community involvement. My primary objective is share my undergraduate activities to illustrate how I turn my passions into action. Wherever I am and wherever I go, I intend to establish and build a caring, competent, and collaborative community.

About Agnes Scott College

ASC is historically an all-women’s, liberal arts college in Decatur, Georgia, right outside of Atlanta. Although ASC is very small, we’re talking an entire student body slightly more than just my high school graduating class of nearly 1,000 students, we know how to make an impression. Check out our stats below!

ASC is certainly my second home, but I am originally from the beautiful borderland of El Paso, Texas where the best of sunrises and sunsets reside. They don’t call it the Sun City for nothing! Through the years, it has been these two locations where my wonderful family, friends, and teachers/professors ceaselessly support my decision to be a life-long learner as a scientist. To all of you wonderful people reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
