“Hi! My name is Alexander Blythe. I am a senior at the University of Arizona and am majoring in both biochemistry and molecular & cellular biology (MCB). I work as an undergraduate researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Daniela Zarnescu, where I study the molecular underpinnings of progressive motor neuron degeneration during Lou Gehrig’s disease, particularly as a result of the dysregulated translation of certain mRNA transcripts. After graduation, I plan to obtain either a Ph.D. or an MD and enter the biomedical research field with a focus on neurodegenerative diseases. Outside of the lab, I enjoy reading, practicing piano, catching up on an ever-growing list of movies and television shows, hiking Sabino Canyon, and exercising.”
