Jennifer's First Post

Hi Everyone!  My name is Jennifer Teruya, and I am a junior Biology major.  I am interested in Cancer Biology because I have many relatives that have been diagnosed with different types of cancer, so I would like to learn more about how cancer works and how it can be diagnosed/ treated/ prevented.  I first became particularly interested in cancer after doing a summer internship in cancer research.  The lab I worked in primarily dealt with research on mesothelioma, which is the cancer of the linings of internal organs, and you can learn more about mesothelioma here.
