I am currently an undergraduate at the University of Virginia from Cairo, Egypt. I expect to graduate in May 2011 with a bachelor's degree in Chemistry. I am following the premedical path and hoping to pursue a career in Medicine after graduation. I am excited about the opportunity to work in the Yan lab. What I like about it the most is the impact the research might have on the therapeutics for many chronic diseases which would be of interest to any physician. I have just started working in the lab to gain much experience in skeletal muscle research. Every day will be a different learning experience, and I am hoping to make the best out of my time here.
