40 Under 40

Independent & Progressive.

Caroline Raasch Alquist, MD, PhD
Age: 31 | New Orleans, LA

Feels Fortunate: To have graduated from the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center's MD/PhD program and remained in her home institution for residency.

Natural Progression: A combined Anatomic and Clinical Pathology residency seemed a natural progression from her doctoral studies on the effects of alcohol intoxication on the hematopoietic precursor cell response to infection, which relied heavily on the principles of flow cytometry and immunology.

Looks Forward To: Given her interest in Transfusion Medicine, Blood Banking and interdepartmental collaborations, Dr. Raasch Alquist will continue her training at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center as a Transfusion Medicine Fellow beginning July 2015.
