Upcoming events

Zoombathon on Oct 16.

This event is a fundraising event in collaboration with my friend/collaborator at Thermo Fisher.

We came up with a fun event “Dance and Donate”.

Your donations will support my research “developing better treatments for pediatric cancers: killing cancer cells effectively with few side effects!!”
