Andrew Alamban on KXCI’s “Thesis Thursday” – 5/24/2018

Hey everybody! My name is Andrew Alamban and I was born in the Philippines but then moved to Parker, where I graduated from Parker High School in 2016. I’m currently a junior studying Molecular and Cellular Biology, as well as Mathematics here at the University of Arizona. I’m extremely lucky to work in the lab of Dr. Janis Burt to study the properties of gap junctions, which allows cells to directly communicate with each other; a cell’s “cell phone,” if you will. When not doing science, I can be found singing along to music from the Beatles all the way to Childish Gambino or defending the relevance of the Star Wars prequels.
