Alumnus Erick Vasquez Cano

"I was a commuting international student when I attended TAMIU in 2015, and I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry in the Spring of 2019. Thanks to the invaluable advice of my professors and all the outstanding opportunities I seized at TAMIU, I am now a second-year graduate student in the Chemical Biology Ph.D. program at Harvard University. Recently, I joined the Haigis Lab at Harvard Medical School, where I will study cellular metabolism and its role in human disease for the remainder of my doctoral program. At Harvard, I am also a member of the Leder Human Biology and Translational Medicine Program. This program complements my coursework and allows me to learn more about the culture of medicine and the roles of scientists in the clinic- something I wish to incorporate in my professional plans for the future.
