 Kemi Tomobi has lived in Maryland for the majority of her life. She expressed an interest in Johns Hopkins because it was in Baltimore city; Hopkins was also one of the few universities in Maryland that offered a neuroscience major. She graduated with a BA in neuroscience, and a minor in French Cultural Studies. She was an active leader in the MAP mentoring program; she was also a vocal leader for ministries such as Gospel Choir and Hopkins Christian Fellowship; Kemi has also participated annually in Culturefest performances. Kemi has also served as an undergraduate basic and organic chemistry tutor. 

Kemi was awarded a National Institutes of Health Fellowship, where she currently researches the neuroendocrine properties of lung tumors. She plans to attend medical school, but is not yet decided on which specialty to pursue. 

Kemi's interest in this project stemmed from the humanities courses she took at Hopkins. She also was interested in Dr. Levi Watkins, because he represents what I am aspiring for; I hope to give back to the underserved communities, I want to be a compassionate and insightful physician, and I hope to be a good mentor to my colleagues and students. As a science major, I learned a lot from this research experience, and I hope that all students have an opportunity to be a part of this research endeavor.
