Profile Biography 
When I was in high school, my biology teacher put a picture on the board of all the signaling pathways in a cell that have to go wrong in order to get cancer. From that point on, I was hooked. I thought cell signaling was absolutely amazing, so I went to Tulane University to major in Cell and Molecular Biology. I loved the classes that taught me about cell communication pathways, and finally I took a course called Molecular Biology of Cancer. I knew this was what I wanted to do, so I started working in a lab researching breast cancer. I loved it so much that I applied to graduate programs to pursue a career in research!

I am now a graduate student pursuing a PhD in Cancer Biology at the University of Chicago. I have recently joined a molecular engineering lab, and my thesis topic is to uncover the interactions between a particular immune cell and tumor cells on the single molecule to single cell level.

I am looking for any and all ways to get other girls interested in science, so please feel free to contact me!
