Undergraduate Student

I am currently a sophomore in the BA/MD program majoring in Biochemistry, and have been working in the Brinker Lab since my junior year high school. I am mainly working on creating and optimizing lipid-coated nanoparticles for cancer treatment (either delivery of chemotherapy drugs or immunotherapy). In the future, I plan on attending UNM Medical School to eventually become a physician.
