“After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I plan to enroll in an MD/PhD dual-degree program and pursue a career as a physician-scientist, working in translational research in the oncology field. More specifically, I am interested in identifying and understanding altered cellular pathways involved in cancer progression to develop effective targeted therapies. I also aim to apply bioengineering to biomedical research to design drug delivery systems that will minimize the side effects of cancer treatment.”
