Thanks to Elizabeth Vanegas for interviewing our great LatinX IBMP students. Here is an excerpt from her interview with Emilio Balbuena, a second year IBMP Scholar. Emilio is doing his MS research in the laboratory of Dr. Kerim Eroglu . In just a year, Emilio has done some fantastic research on the anti-oxidant properties of lycopene, a carotenoid molecule found in watermelon, tomato and other fruits. His research was recently published in Antioxidants, Lycopene Protects against Smoking-Induced Lung Cancer by Inducing Base Excision Repair.
