Hannah Ball on KXCI’s “Thesis Thursday” – 2/13/2020

My name is Hannah Ball and I am a junior majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Arizona. I am in the Undergraduate Biology Research Program and work in Dr. Zarnescu’s lab. Our lab studies ALS using fruit flies as a model. For my project, I look at how metabolism affects the progression of ALS and how an enzyme called PFK could potentially help improve the side effects of ALS. In my free time I love going to concerts and spending time with friends.
