“I am currently a postdoctoral associate in Dr. Lin Zhang’s laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh. My postdoctoral research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms driving the interplay between cell death and immune response in microsatellite instability high colorectal cancer. My goals as a postdoctoral associate are to grow as an independent researcher and gain more writing experience. Ultimately, my goal is to lead a research laboratory at a small liberal arts college.
