Dr. Christina M. H. Powell, PhD works in management in the pharmaceutical industry. She has a strong scientific research background conducting cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute  (1992-1999, doctoral research) and genetics research at Massachusetts General Hospital (postdoctoral research within a physician’s group), two affiliates of Harvard Medical School and Harvard University. Her research background in biochemistry, microbiology, and molecular biology extends back to Penn State University, where she graduated in three years with a B.S. in Biochemistry (1988) , and won numerous awards, including a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship and national leadership award for college women (1988). She served as a gubernatorial Trustee on the University’s Board of Trustees (1987-1990). (At that time, there was no student trustee chosen by the Board, but the Governor of Pennsylvania, by tradition, chose a student to fill one of the gubernatorial appointments, and this appointment was ratified by the state senate. The term was for three years, not two. Christina is pleased that the university now has a guaranteed student trustee position, and she is impressed with how the University Park campus has developed.) She is the mother of a Penn State graduate.
