Eshan S. King

I am a MD/PhD candidate in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and a member of the Theory Division at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Insitute. As a graduate student, my work involves developing models to understand and predict the evolution of resistance in cancer and infectious disease. As a medical student and aspiring clinician, I am interested in leveraging the rich field of evolutionary biology to expand our cancer therapy toolkit.

Hailing from Alabama, I went to undergrad at Washinton University in St. Louis, where I majored in biomedical engineering with a minor in electrical engineering and ran varsity cross country and track and field. I spent a gap year as a research technician in the Lew Lab where I studied single molecule imaging of DNA structures.

I matriculated in the Case MSTP in the summer of 2019. In the summer of 2021, I matriculated in the Systems Biology and Bioinformatics PhD program at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

Outside of academia, I like craft coffee, rock climbing, running, and spotting cats around my neighborhood.
