Hi! I am currently a Master’s student at SFSU. I am in the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) program at SFSU. I am interested in two fields: Cancer Biology and Developmental Biology. I hope I can merge the two principles together in the future! During my spare time, I like sitting at home, sipping on earl grey tea, and reading a really good cathartic poetry book. Write to you soon!
