March is Women’s History Month. And there is a growing list of women making history in the world of medicine. One researcher is making a difference in the world of nanomedicine at Mayo Clinic in Florida. And it’s work that could one day save lives. Dr. Joy Wolfram, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic where she leads the Nanomedicine and Extra-cellular Vesicles Laboratory. She’s been getting a lot of attention lately; Forbes magazine even spotlights her as one of their 30 to watch under the age of 30. Her work is about saving lives. “We need to think out of the box,” she says. “We need to think big and be visionaries.”
