About this event

Ria Fyffe-Freil is a Clinical Chemistry fellow at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. She earned her PhD from Virginia Commonwealth University after studying molecular mechanisms of organ preservation injury in livers for transplantation and is a fierce advocate for organ donation. She struggled to find a career that aligned with her interests/values and after investigating as many paths as possible, clinical chemistry literally fell into her lap. Ria has 2 elderly cats and 2 dogs, and enjoys traveling the world with her sommelier/transplant coordinator husband, Matt.
