Ricky Lira on KXCI’s “Thesis Thursday” – 4/4/19

I am an Arizona native, born and raised in Nogales. I graduated from Nogales High School and came to the University of Arizona to pursue a career in pharmacology. I am currently majoring in chemistry and hope to pursue a Ph.D in medicinal chemistry or pharmaceutics. I am currently working in Dr. Klimecki’s lab in where we are starting a new genetics project in collaboration with the Cherrington lab. When I am not in lab, I like to hangout with friends, getting together and having a cookout at the grill. If not that, we go play basketball.
