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.
Sama Mikhail
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.
Tyler Hopkins
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.
Ariana Mardani
I am a third-year student at SDSU studying Kinesiology. I have been working in the Sussman lab for a year now and have loved learning the long term effects of nicotine as well as have enjoyed the hands on experience I’ve been able to provide all throughout. Research has always been an interest of mine and so this lab has really gifted me the ability to experience what I love, alongside a crew of extremely welcoming people. This past year a majority of my work was done in the basement, making sure the mice were kept in good conditions. Aside from that, I have had the pleasure of assisting the Master and PhD students in any way I can. I cannot wait for my next year in this lab and the knowledge to come from it!
Faid Jaafar
II am a fourth-year pre-medicine student at SDSU studying microbiology and I will be working in the Sussman lab as an undergraduate researcher studying the cardiopulmonary effects of vaping. I look forward to gaining skills and knowledge in my studies as I have always found interest in the field considering how common vaping has become. Working at a Heart and Vascular Clinic intrigued my passion for cardiology, and I am excited to branch out in researching the effects on both the heart and lungs. In my free time I tutor refugees at Ibarra Elementary and I am also a student leader with involvements such as co-president of NAAMA NextGen, vice president of Project iHope, and secretary of Refugee Aid at SDSU.
