“The Grand Challenges Scholars Program has inspired me to connect my studies and interest in engineering research with my aspiration for a career in medicine. As a research assistant in the Graham Laboratory at USC, I combined molecular biology and bioinformatics to understand how cancer cells rewire their metabolism with the implication of identifying potential targets for novel cancer therapeutics. I look forward to pursuing a career as a physician-scientist in order to continue seeking a deeper understanding of cancer while bringing new treatments into the clinic.”
