Being a student at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke has built my hard working personality. At UNCP I have conducted research since my freshmen year with Dr. Paul Flowers in the area of Spectroelectrochemistry where quantitative and qualitative analytical techniques are used to indicate the state and the concentration of medicinal drugs in the blood stream. I also worked with Dr. Carter at the University of Alabama at Birmingham on mapping out the mechanism which by cigarette smoking increases the risk and severity of Lower Respiratory Tract Infections. In addition, I am currently working with Dr. Santisteban on understanding the role of the histone H2A variant in gene activation and transitional initiation in a yeast model. Being actively involved in biomedical research have allowed me to realize its importance in order to understand the mechanisms by which disorders occur and progress in the human body. Biomedical research is the most powerful tool to develop the health care system by finding cures to medical problems.
