Michigan State University medical student, Cristina Perez is joining the Chandler lab.
Asked to introduce herself, Cristina shared, "Hello Everyone! My name is Cristina Perez and I am a third year medical student at MSU CHM (Michigan State University College of Human Medicine).I grew up in Grand Haven, MI and have been in Michigan ever since. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan in Biopsychology, Cognition and Neuroscience. I have been involved in both clinical and lab research in the past. During this past summer I worked in a research lab at Stanford University, where my main focus was trying to identify and understand the role of Nemo-like Kinase in various cancers. Aside from school and research, I enjoy running and training for marathons, traveling, and keeping up with the latest food scene. I am excited to be a part of this lab and am looking forward to getting to know all of you!"
Cristina will be doing double-duty: clinical rotations for medical school at Spectrum Health and research experiments in the lab when her schedule allows. We are pleased that Cristina has chosen to join us!
