Thesis Thursday- Casey Calderon

SONY DSC Hello! My name is Casey Calderon and I’m a sophomore majoring in Physiology and Theatre Arts. I’m Tucson born and raised and I’ve always wanted to be a Wildcat from a very early age. Currently, I’m apart of the EHS-TRUE program and I’m working in Dr. Nathan Cherrington’s lab where we are studying how a type of liver disease impacts various proteins within the liver. Outside of research, I’m currently a member of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) chapter and do some work with the U of A theatre department as well. When I’m not in class or studying, I’m probably either cooking yummy food, doing something theatre-related, or reading/podcasting. Following graduation, I would like to attend medical school to become either an endocrinologist or family practice doctor. ...

Sarah Lester

Sarah Lester is a senior at the University of Arizona with a major in Molecular and Cellular Biology and a minor in Biochemistry. She is originally from Illinois where she earned an Associates of Arts in Journalism before transferring to the University of Arizona. After being exposed to biology in community college, she quickly developed an interest in genetics. This drove her decision to apply to UBRP and join a lab that studies a type of genetic epilepsy, where she specifically studies how the brain reacts to seizures through mRNA. Sarah intends to apply to PhD programs to continue studying genetic disease once she completes her undergraduate studies. Outside of school, Sarah spends her time doing archery, reading, and enjoying the outdoors. ...
