From a young man resisting to take an after school nap to play sports with friends, to a Grad student earning his Pharmaceutical Sciences PhD in Korea, Dr. Taslim A. Al-Hilal sits down with Keith Pannell to talk about how the ‘american dream’ brought him from his hometown Bangladesh, to Korea, and finally landed in El Paso, TX where he earned a teaching position in the Department of Pharmacy.

Dr. Taslim was recently awarded $3.8M by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to lead Cancer Research in hopes to reduce mortality rates in lung, ovarian and pancreatic cancer.
