We are excited to submit Atif Towheed, PhD, OMS-IV, as a national candidate for Student Researcher of the Year. Atif was selected by our committee as TouroCOM Middletown’s Student Researcher of the Year not only for his prior research and publications but for his ongoing efforts during his Medical School career.

Three years after earning his Ph.D. in Molecular Pharmacology and Chemical Biology, Atif started his journey at TouroCOM Middletown. Atif’s area of expertise is in mitochondrial conditions. He has also published across a broad spectrum of other topics and has participated in numerous projects both in our Middletown community and nationally.
