Like molecular theory itself, becoming a scientist involves starting with germs of knowledge and watching that expertise grow. Lander College for Women 2013 graduate and current Touro College of Pharmacy Class of 2017 student Elisheva Swartz is midway through her development from curious undergraduate to future pharmacist. Her mission is to research ardently and consume theory about what ails and rehabilitates human beings and, one day, put that all into practice. “It’s exhilarating," she says. "I'm spending my time learning about how the physical world is built."
