Blake was informed about the program from a professor who wanted to see him move forward with his studies. Blake would like to research the development of human clinical therapies for diabetes or multiple sclerosis. He also has the very specific goal to research for 2 years after graduating, then continue to earn a MBA from Penn State, and then eventually he hopes to run one of the stem cell companies.
After graduation, Blake obtained a position as a Cell Therapy Specialist at Progenitor Cell Therapy in Mountain View, CA, where he is working on producing stem cell dervied therapies for cancer clinical trials.
