I am an Honors, senior undergraduate studying Computer Science and Physiology with a minor in Biochemistry. This year, I have the pleasure of working alongside the faculty advisor, Dr. Park, and my peers in the Biochemistry club to establish a club dedicated on utilizing science to foster a sense of interconnectedness not only on the UA campus but within the community as well. Beyond my involvement in Biochemistry club, I also work in research at the College of Medicine. My current research encompasses working with swine models to maintain optimal systemic circulatory support for ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest in high risk coronary syndrome patients. Furthermore, I also work in another lab developing computer programs to help track the locomotion of Drosophila melanogaster with a mutation that displays ALS pathology. My overarching goal is to attend medical school and become a skilled physician that can help and serve patients. It is my goal to use my experiences in order to provide new perspectives to the club’s already diverse background.
Hi my name is Emma Wu and I am the current Secretary of the Biochemistry Club. I am a sophomore studying Biochemistry and MCB here at the UofA, hoping to pursue a career in pharmacy. I grew up in Glendale, Arizona, but my family is from Hong Kong. Some of my hobbies include hiking, meditating, napping, and watching Netflix.
Social & Outreach Chair
My name is Madeline Morrow and I am a sophomore majoring in Biochemistry and French, with a minor in MCB, and a student in the Honors College. This is my second year being a member of the Biochemistry Club, and my first as an officer, working as the Social & Outreach Chair for our club. Outside of Biochemistry Club and my studies, I'm a student ambassador for the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department, as well as a peer mentor. I am currently shadowing a pediatrics doctor at Banner Health: Primary Care Medicine Center in Maricopa. I hope to one day get into medical school to become a pediatrics doctor. I'm so excited for our work this year with the club in planning BECUR and our community outreach projects and hope that we can further expand our work!
Hello, my name is Hiromi Fukuzaki and I am a Junior majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology. Biochemistry Club has been one of my extracurriculars since my Freshman year at the UofA. Though it was not until last year that I held the Media Director position, I have been a part of this organization for some time. Being the Media Director has taught me a lot about the other officers as well as the work required to run this club. I think Biochemistry club has a lot to offer. I have participated in Biochem hosted events such as BECUR and Tucson Festival of Books (TFOB). Also, I am currently an officer for Women in Medicine in Science (WIMS). Therefore I do understand what it is like to be part of something larger than yourself. Communication and coordination is imperative for success and having worked alongside the previous officers as well as meet most of the members allows me to confidently say that cooperation will not be a problem as your Vice President this year.
Hi, I’m Bianca! I’m a sophomore undergraduate student at the University of Arizona double majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology and minoring in Spanish. I am currently employed as a Research Associate in the Ronaldson lab. My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms of glucose transporters at the blood-brain barrier in relation to stroke treatment and outcome.
My initial involvement with the Biochemistry Club was presenting at BECUR in 2015 while in high school. This was when I presented a literature research project and when I heard the outstanding data generated by UA undergraduates presenting alongside me, I instantly became motivated to generate meaningful data of my own to present at BECUR 2016. Since then, I have continued to stay involved in research and my goal is to continue pursing presentation opportunities in order to continue improving my presentation skills. I officially joined the biochemistry club my freshman year and I gained valuable outreach experience, added peers and faculty to my network, and obtained excellent career advice. Now, the other officers and I seek to bring these benefits to you plus much more!
