Fond Farewell

We wish a fond farewell to Navid Arandi, B.S., who departs us to resume his medical training this June at the University of California; Irvine. Navid performed above and beyond the requirements of his position as Research Fellow. He understands the true meaning of teamwork and friendship. Although Navid won't be with us physically, we will always be apart of our program's family and we are proud to call him a colleague. We wish Navid the very best as he now moves on to attain his goals in medicine.
