Thesis Thursday- Roslyn Curry

My name is Roslyn Curry and I am an undergraduate student attending the University of Arizona, and will graduate May 2017. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biology with a minor in Biochemistry. My post-graduation plans are to participate in the Applied Biosciences Accelerated Master’s program at the University of Arizona. Being a member of the Navajo Nation, I plan to have a career in which I can contribute to the health of my people, as well as the health of the environment within my homeland, Dinétah, on the Navajo Reservation. Currently, I am taking steps towards my goal by participating in the Program for Native American Cancer Prevention (NACP) subsection of the Undergraduate Biology Research Program (UBRP) at the university. The research I am conducting includes exploring the form of Soluble Guanylyl Cyclase (sGC) in order to gain insight on its function in regards to regulating blood pressure, wound healing, and memory formation in anticipation for discovery of new treatments for hypertension.

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.
