Thesis Thursday- Ruby Sierra

February 23, 2017

Thesis Thursday- Ruby Sierra

I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona molded by the desert and I am currently a sophomore

at the University of Arizona pursing a Bachelor’s of Science in Neuroscience and Cognitive

Science. I am a part of the EHS-True program working under the laboratory of Dr.Boitano.

Under his mentorship, I study the effects of inhalation of arsenic-laden dust from superfund mine

tailings on airway barrier function. Being a part of the program has allowed me to understand the

importance of connecting science and community, especially in underrepresented populations.

After graduating I am currently planning to pursue a career in medicine.

Thesis Thursday- Ruby Sierra

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 on and 91.3 FM with a new student each week.

Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM

Thesis Thursday is recorded at KXCI 91.3 FM community radio in downtown Tucson, Arizona.

Produced by Bridgitte Thum
