Abstract 2973. Rac inhibitors for cancer therapy.

What are your long-term goals?

My long-term goal is to be a clinical and translational researcher in the cancer field. I would like to investigate new therapies against cancer disease with a focus on breast and pancreatic cancer. 

Please share information about how the pandemic has impacted your research over the last two years. 

The pandemic situation has had an impact on the delay in the shipment and availability of materials and reactives necessary for my investigation. Also because of the restrictions, I had to delay my experiments that in turn affect the time to finish my thesis investigation and finally graduate.
