Marc Philippon, Jr.,
Marc grew up in Vail and graduated with a BA with honors from Notre Dame in Studio Art and a Pre-Health supplementary major in May 2022. He has had a strong interest in orthopaedic medicine and skeletal anatomy since high school and have recently directed his focus to the biological side of orthopaedic medicine.
At SPRI, his aim is to better understand the mechanisms of fracture healing and how this may be affected by age and cellular senescence. His goal is to become a physician and he feels grateful to be working in a lab that is continually making innovative contributions to the medical field and pushing the profession forward. Marc looks forward to spending time in his hometown and getting back to doing the outdoor activities he missed in college.
