Hi! I’m Anna
I’m a student at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan! I’m studying biophysics, with minors in music and math which provide some nice variety in my daily schedule! I enjoy nature, hiking with my dog, Rex, playing tennis and softball, and cooking yummy food 🙂
In this blog, I’ll be describing some of my research about cancer and the mechanisms by which it develops and spreads. Cancer is a very important issue to me, and I plan on dedicating my career to better understanding its progression in the hopes of one day finding effective therapies. The quotes below describe my thoughts about research and I feel very lucky that I’m able to explore my curiosities in the lab!
“Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.”— Zora Hurston
“Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.”— Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
And my favorite …
“If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”— Albert Einstein
