Career Aspirations:

Cancer has affected the lives of so many people, from a wide range of different backgrounds. I want to alleviate the suffering that often results from the diagnosis of an individual or their loved ones with cancer, and is why I sought to study the oncogenic virus known as Kaposi‚Äôs sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). By studying this virus and the molecular mechanisms that contribute to oncogenesis, I hope to identify possible targets for future treatments to help those affected by the virus.
