We are excited to announce that Selena Hernandez has joined the Chan Lab!
Brief bio: Selena graduated with a BS in Chemistry from UCLA. She began her undergraduate research career in medicinal chemistry, where she synthesized a library of ribonucleotide reductase inhibitors to halt DNA synthesis in pancreatic cancer cells. In her senior year, Selena worked on bioorthogonal strategies utilizing host-guest chemistry to fluorescently label cell surfaces. She also participated in an internship at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where she worked on the synthesis of scintillator dyes for radiation detection. Selena is currently a Chemistry PhD student in the area of Organic Chemistry.
