Eylem Topaktas’s primary interest in the field of pediatric endocrinology is understanding the cardiac effects of endocrine problems. She chose the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes at Washington University both because of its excellent research facilities which will help her achieve her future goals and because of the wide variety of clinical cases. The most significant factor in her decision was that she felt like a part of this family from the beginning — even during the interview.
