Career Aspirations:

I am interested in understanding our immune system’s response to cancerous cells. My research focuses on identifying and optimizing the response of Natural Killer cells to target pancreatic tumours. After obtaining my graduate degree, I hope to begin my studies in medical school. With this education, I plan to continue to study the interactions between the immune system and cancer as a way to identify potential treatment and therapeutic methods.
