Dr. McKay Mullen is a postdoctoral scholar in the cardiovascular institute at Stanford School of Medicine. He attended Morehouse College, Atlanta, and obtained a B.S. in Psychology in 2008. He then joined Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta and obtained a master’s degree in biomedical research in 2015 and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science in 2021, studying the effect of chemotherapy on triple-negative breast cancer. As a postdoctoral fellow, his research has focused on evaluating racial disparities as they relate to cardio-oncology. Specifically, he plans to study the impact of chemotherapy on the cardiovascular system and evaluate whether racial disparities influence healthcare outcomes. This is his second year with REACH, and his primary goal outside of his research is helping students obtain either a Ph.D., MD, or MD, Ph.D. His hobbies include drawing, cooking, and playing soccer.
