Hello! My name is Shelby Herrick. I am a junior at the University of Arizona pursuing a BSHS in Physiology and Medical Sciences with a minor in Biochemistry. With the help of the EHS-TRUE program, I am fortunate to work in Dr. Yin Chen’s lab under the department of Pharmacology and Toxicology. Our lab focuses on researching environmental toxins that affect the lungs in an effort to identify novel targets that can be used for drug development.

Outside of research, I have leadership roles in two other clubs, Bluechip Leadership and UA Physiology club. Being active in the UA and  Tucson communities is a big passion of mine; Staying active in the community has allowed me to feel connected with my peers and acknowledge the current issues our Tucson community faces. On weekends you can often find me volunteering with hospice patients or holding a philanthropy event! Other passions of mine are travel, botany, and classic cars!
