Michael is a recent graduate of Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University, with a BS in Biology. He has previously worked in Dr. Bereket Mochona’s lab developing an anticancer agent that comprises dual or triple effects that can simultaneously act on two or three proteins to avoid drug resistance and also be more specific and not act too broadly and harm healthy cells. Over the next year he will be working under the mentorship of Dr. Jose Trevino over the next year in preparation for a strong application to medical school.
