Coming to graduate school, I wanted the opportunity to continue exploring my research interests. GGSB was the perfect fit for me because of the flexibility it allows. With so many faculty to choose from across different departments, I feel completely free to engage with interdisciplinary research. Additionally, the UChicago community is so welcoming and supportive! I genuinely feel that everyone wants me to succeed.
A macrophage (in white) engulfs a cancer cell. When these immune cells respond to infection or tumors, they produce a substance call lactate, which can actually fuel cancer growth.
Software identified the METTL3 gene (left) as a potential "driver gene" for bladder cancer. The closeups below show areas with genetic mutations.
Surface view of a Drosophila egg chamber, the multicellular precursor to the egg. The follicular epithelial cells that form the egg chamber’s outer layer collectively migrate along the extracellular matrix (ECM) that surrounds the organ. This collective migration, in turn, causes the entire egg chamber to rotate within the ECM to create the elongated shape of the egg.
