Show Notes

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.

Kristina Sin

My name is Kristina Sin, and I’m currently a junior at the University of Arizona, majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology, as well as Biochemistry, and minoring in Government and Public Policy. My main career aspiration is to become a physician scientist, with the intention to pursue an MD-PhD after graduation. Currently, I’m preparing to take my MCATs next year, while balancing independent research at the Churko Lab, located at the Sarver Heart Center. The Churko Lab studies cardiovascular diseases and development using human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). My research primarily focuses on how embryonic development can be recapitulated to direct the differentiation of stem cells towards specific cardiac cell fates. Outside of school, I enjoy exploring Tucson, especially its vibrant food scene, and swimming at the rec!   ...
