Thesis Thursday with Aline Catherine Kraus

aline My name is Aline and I am a senior at the University of Arizona in the Physiology Department.  I’ve been involved in Dr. Tomat’s research lab for one year and I am currently developing a chemical toolbox to investigate the iron communication between tumor-associated macrophages and cancer cells.  In pursuit of my goal of becoming a physician I am currently applying to medical school.  I enjoy helping others and being involved both on campus and within the community.  I spend my free time hiking, traveling, reading, and spending time with my friends and family.

The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. As well, they get a chance to share the music and interests that motivate them.

Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.

Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM

Produced by Cathy Rivers
