l setting with topnotch researchers and facilities,” said Drew, who is an Anderson Scholar in Science at University School. “I've learned so much in the past three years.”

The medical gene runs strong in the family. Drew’s father is an Otolaryngologist Head and Neck surgeon at University Hospitals Case Medical Center. His mother is a physician in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at MetroHealth Medical Center. Drew heard about Dr. McDermott’s research from his dad. As he became more interested in biology and genetics, Drew knew he wanted to work in the lab.

“I enjoy the trial, error and ambiguity of the research,” Drew said. “Being in the lab at Case isn’t like a school science lab because things don’t always work like you would expect,” he said. “Many times the results are confusing. Still, I’ve taken great joy in trying to figure out what’s going on, then trying again when things don’t work.”

The teen credits University School for propelling his interest in medical research. “The science classes at US have definitely opened my eyes to research and medicine as a career field,” said Drew. “The topics covered in class often overlap with my work at Case.”

Like other Anderson Science Scholars at University School, Drew is acquiring the research skills necessary to become a good scientist. He joins other students at US who are pursuing individualized programs that connect course work with significant experiences outside the walls of the school.
