Karen Evans, Diabetes Research Program Administrator
I was born in New York City where I attended Walden School. After that I went to Ladycliff College for three years and then transferred to Fordham University where I received a B.A. I started working at Columbia University and worked in the following departments: Pharmacology, Center for Radiological Research, Radiation Safety, Neurology (Stroke and Critical Care Division). In 1995, I worked for seven months for Capital Market Risk Advisors, a midtown financial firm. In 2005, I joined Dr. Schmidt’s lab as the Divisional Administrator in the Department of Surgery (Division of Surgical Science). In 2010, our lab transferred to NYU Medical Center, where I presently work as the Divisional Administrator in the Diabetes Research Program.
