Abstract 113. Investigating the role of high mobility group a2 (HMGA2) truncated isoform in promoting oxidative stress in PCa cells. 

What are your long-term goals? 

My long-term goal is to utilize novel research methodology to generate scientific knowledge in cancer biology contributing to the development of efficient interventions to decrease diseases. I further aspire to improve the health of minority populations around the world by identifying and addressing the disparities in cancer outcomes due to race, geography, and other contextual and/or socioeconomic factors. I further desire to work as an independent principal investigator in an environment tailored to preventative disease measures all while training up future minority cancer scientists. 

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

The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced several barriers that I have had to learn how to navigate. One of the major impacts of this pandemic in regard to my research progress has been the delay in detrimental materials due to supply chain issues. The delay of these lab materials have hindered my ability to submit manuscripts and over all caused postponement of my research progression.
