Meet the Date Night Bachelorettes

Marian Ackun Farmmer

I was born in Ghana and moved to DC when I was 10 years old. I always had a passion for math, science and engineering. I pursued my passion by getting my BS in biomedical engineering from George Washington University where I was active with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) GWU chapter and university theatre. After graduating from GWU, I began working for a pharmaceutical company and moved to Mississippi, North Carolina and Indiana. After 3 years of working, I decided to pursue my passion for research and this is what led me to my current degree program and Rochester in 2015. Recently, I was awarded an AfterCollege scholarship and an ASSIST Travel Award to attend the 2017 NSBE annual convention in Kansas City, MO.
