Thesis Thursday- Adam Kai Aragaki
My name is Kai Aragaki – I’m currently a junior at the University of Arizona, studying Biochemistry as well as Molecular and Cellular Biology. I’m working in the lab of Dr. Ronald Lynch, where we’re trying to create an agent that binds to very specific types of cells, depending on the features of the outside of the cell – which turns out to be quite useful when trying to attach to only, for example, cancer cells. When I’m not in the lab or at school, I’m drinking coffee, petting cats, and listening to music
The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program has partnered 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. Plus, they get a chance to talk about the music and interests that motivate them. This radio program gives students the opportunity to talk publicly about their findings and inform the community about what is going on in the wide world of science and research.
Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.
Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM
Created by Cathy Rivers, produced by Bridgitte Thum.
