Thesis Thursday- Mariajose Franco

Mariajose Franco:

My name is Mariajose Franco and I will be a junior this coming fall at the University of Arizona, where I study Molecular and Cellular Biology with minors in Physiology and Spanish. I am currently working in Dr. McEvoy’s laboratory, which studies the role of epigenetics – specifically, the deregulation of long-noncoding RNA activity – in the development of a type of pediatric cancer known as rhabdomyosarcoma. In the future, I hope to become a physician scientist and conduct research on pediatric leukemia. Outside of lab, I like to spend time with my friends, read, and watch Netflix.

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

Created by Cathy Rivers, produced by Bridgitte Thum.
