I am a third-year Pre-Medicine Honors Biology Student, and have been in the Sussman Laboratory since my first year! I currently help with Lung & Heart Histology, Imaging/Imaging Analysis, and the managing/genotyping of our colony in the vivarium. I am eager and excited to continue the growth of my skills within the Lab.  I volunteer at Scripps Memorial La Jolla in my free time and am an active member of the Kappa Delta Sorority.

I am a third-year student at SDSU studying microbiology and an undergraduate researcher in the Sussman Lab studying the cardiopulmonary effects of vaping. I started my work in the lab six months ago, and I am passionate about continuing my studies and growth in the lab as a student researcher. I also love to be involved in my campus community, and I am passionate about gender equality, cultural awareness, and reproductive rights.

I am a fourth-year Biology student at SDSU and I’ve been working in the Sussman lab for a year. When I was a toddler, my first ever words were “What are the long term effects of extensive nicotine use on the cardiopulmonary system?” I followed that spark to the Sussman Lab, where I work with the SCIREQ machine, tissue samples, and assisting the Masters and PhD students. The Sussman Lab has been a great experience so far, and I’m grateful for the opportunities it has brought me.

  I am fourth-year student at SDSU majoring in biology. I have been in the Sussman Lab for a year now and it has been an incredible place to learn and practice my lab skills. I always had an interest in learning about pulmonary effect of vaping and being part of Dr. Sussman’s lab has been an honor. I have been working with SCIREQ machine along with helping M.S. and PhD students with various lab procedures.
