Ma’ayanot Alumna Inspires Health Sciences Students

Temima Yellin, Ma’ayanot Class of ‘18, recently shared her journey and research with each of the three elective classes in the Ma’ayanot Health Sciences concentration track. Temima, currently working at the prestigious Krammer lab in Mount Sinai Hospital, is on the cusp of pursuing a Ph.D. As a dedicated researcher for the past year and a half, she has been delving into the realm of antibody responses to respiratory RNA viruses.

For the ninth-grade Pathways to Health Sciences class, who recently completed a unit on Epidemiology, Temima’s insights into the various ways respiratory viruses spread and her involvement in cutting-edge vaccine research proved to be a captivating addition to their studies. The tenth-grade human anatomy and physiology class, having just concluded a unit on the respiratory system, found Temima’s explanation of the effects of respiratory viruses on different components of this system as an eye-opening addition of a real-world dimension to their classroom learning. Temima kicked off her presentation with a juxtaposition of a photo of herself performing a fetal pig dissection while she was a student at Ma’ayanot with an image of her engaged in her current research. This allowed the 11th-grade science research students to envision their potential trajectories over the next few years.

Across all classes, Temima’s insights and experiences served as a testament to the possibilities that await the Ma’ayanot Health Elective students in the dynamic world of health research.
