Why I Joined METC

After participating in the 2012 BOPs(Bioscience Opportunity Program) I decided to apply to UW-Madison. After meeting with students and faculty from METC I decided this was the graduate program for me.

Current Research

My current research involves investigating the role of environmental estrogens in the progression of prostatic disease(s).
