Sam has taken advantage of a plethora of opportunities to advance his skills through research-based summer internships across the country and has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health for his work—a rare feat for an undergraduate. In this episode, he highlights his experiences and the ways Purdue Pharmacy is helping him prepare for his next giant leap.
