What does being recognized as a Presidential Trainee mean to you?
First and foremost, I would like to thank ASCPT for deeming my work worthy of the Presidential Trainee Award. It is always beneficial to be acknowledged in the realm of medical research, and acknowledgment from an organization such as ASCPT is both exciting and encouraging. I have been overwhelmed by the attention. This honor also gives me additional courage and determination to continue my work in biomedical research. My long-term professional ambition is to become a productive researcher with the primary objective of translating my findings into advantages for human health. As a result, I hope that this award will motivate me to contribute even more to my study in the coming years.

Who has inspired you in your career?
I have always been fascinated by science. My interest in research grew during my undergraduate studies and has grown stronger over time. I will be eternally grateful to my graduate studies PI, Professor Tae Cheon Jeong, who has guided me through every stage of my research career. I joined Drs. Hu and Sparreboom's lab at The Ohio State University after finishing my graduate program. This laboratory focuses on drug transporters and toxicities caused by chemotherapeutics. I am extremely grateful to Drs. Hu and Sparreboom for their ongoing advice, support, and inspiration.

Do you have a favorite tip or trick for clinical practice or research?
In my opinion, there are no shortcuts, techniques, or recommendations in research. In your study, you should always be driven and genuine. Discuss your findings with your PI or senior colleagues in your field to troubleshoot your issues. Make it a practice to keep up with current discoveries every day. Always follow the exact instructions when performing the studies and be patient and remain calm at all times.

When you are not working, how do you spend your free time?
In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music or watching movies. I mostly enjoy watching comedies on TV or in movies. Laughter makes me feel more energized and revitalized. During nice weather, I also like to go on picnics or long drives.

Dr. Nepal has been a member of ASCPT since 2021.
