I aspire to become a cancer researcher. My deep fascination with the immune system and my interest in chemical biology has prompted in me a passion for immunotherapy cancer research. At Dr. Mallikaratchy’s lab, we are designing aptamers in order to improve their affinity to bind to cancer cells. In my spare time, I draw portraits in my sketchbook, write poetry, sing and play the piano.
