HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?
Although different research groups all around the world have worked on understanding fundamental aspects of cancer, it remains a mysterious desease. My major is Molecular Biology in which I do basic research on molecular interactions inside cells that lead to some blood cells cancer. In this project, I focus on isolating specific cellular components that trigger a pathway that leads to cell division and cancer as a result.
