Thesis Thursday
Thesis Thursday- Ricky Lira

I am an Arizona native, born and raised in Nogales. I graduated from Nogales High School and came to the University of Arizona to pursue a career in pharmacology. I am currently majoring in chemistry and hope to pursue a Ph.D in medicinal chemistry. I am currently working in Dr. Klimecki’s lab in where I am studying the effects of arsenic on the cell when it comes to influenza infection. When I am not in lab, I like to hangout with friends, getting together and having a cookout at the grill. If not that, we go play basketball.


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.
