What are your long-term goals?

My long-term goal is to become a successful cancer research investigator that is able to contribute greatly to the scientific community. I also aim to become an influential mentor to future scientists by creating a research environment at UTRGV that is suitable for the training and development of students. Besides establishing a well-funded research laboratory to train students, I aim to achieve this goal by developing initiatives that will create more opportunities to expose students to research.

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

Having to balance research and home responsibilities due to how schooling was affected by COVID has negatively affected research productivity. The closing of our labs for some time due to COVID has also been an issue.
