Nzinga Mack is a teacher, scientist and nature lover who was born and raised in Harlem, NY and graduated from Howard University with her Bachelor of Science in Biology.
She is currently a PhD candidate at Florida A&M University where her research focuses on exciting novel metabolic pathways in triple negative breast cancer, a cancer that disproportionately affects African American women.
Additionally, Nzinga is a instructor for Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions, where she prepares students to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) and Medical Colleges Admissions Test (MCAT). She currently has the honor of being featured on the front page of the www.kaptest.com website as a top national instructor. One of Nzinga's proudest moments has been helping to organize and teach MCAT classes that are free to premedical students at Florida A&M University, as she believes that economics should not be a barrier to entry into medical school.
Nzinga is honored to be a recipient of the highly competitive NIH Institutional Research and Academic Career Development Postdoctoral Award at Johns Hopkins University. This teaching and research fellowship in collaboration with Morgan State University and Coppin State University is an absolutely amazing opportunity to combine her love of research and teaching.
Nzinga's mission is to attack health disparities in three major ways - by continuing to research health disparities, by training upcoming scientists in the field of health disparities, and by helping to increase the number of African Americans in the health care professions.
When Nzinga is not working, she can be found gardening, raising butterflies, and enjoying nature.
