Thesis Thursday- Pierce Longmire

Thesis Thursday- Pierce Longmire

I’m, a junior at the University of Arizona studying Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB)

with minors in Biochemistry and Mathematics. I have always been fascinated with how life operates at

the miniscule level, and I am grateful to be a member of Dr. Ramin Yadegari’s research lab, which

studies molecular and cellular interactions in plants, namely, maize. Outside of lab research, I am a TA

for an introductory MCB course here at the University of Arizona. I aspire to obtain a PhD and become a

professor in cancer biology.


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.
