Thesis Thursday- John Kim

September 14, 2017
SUPPORT

My name is John Kim and I am a senior at the University of Arizona, majoring in Neuroscience
and Cognitive Science, along with a secondary major in Molecular and Cellular Biology and a
minor in Biochemistry. My academic and career goal is to pursue an MD-PhD in neurosurgery
and neuropsychology research. I am currently working in the Vanderah and Largent-Milnes lab
group where I analyze the presence of tight junction proteins expressed on the blood-brain
barrier from rat brain samples of migraine with aura models. My research career began when I
was accepted as a high school intern at the ASU Biodesign Institute. Since then, I have been
honing my research skills in preparation for my thesis topic, which is the molecular constituents
of the central nervous system in abnormal psychology models. Throughout my time at UofA, I
have been involved in Alpha Epsilon Delta (the pre-health honorary) and UBRP Ambassadors,
where I am currently the Volunteer Chair.

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. They also get a chance to share their 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

Created by Cathy Rivers, produced by Bridgitte Thum.
