Mehrnaz Ighani

Premedical Division Region 3 Director

I am a third-year public health science and studio art major at UMD. I’m currently doing clinical research at Johns Hopkins, Wilmer Eye Institute with a focus on partial endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK/DSEK) and public health research on campus. I’ve initiated a branch of AIM at Melanoma Foundation in Maryland coordinating skin cancer screenings and melanoma educational events for my community. I’m also a certified interpreter fluent in English, Persian, Turkish, and Azerbaijani and a home care assistant providing services for a disabled patient. On my spare time, I enjoy painting and mentoring high school students.
