Myojung started out in undergrad studying animal science at Cal Poly with the intent to become a large animal veterinarian, and was able to gain a lot of experience in working with a large variety of different animals. However, they later switched paths and decided to focus more on research.
After graduating with a BS in animal science, Myojung applied to the CIRM master’s program at Cal Poly. They learned about Rubedo’s program and goals through the CIRM program, and is fascinated by the ongoing research regarding treating age-related diseases and cancer therapies.
Myojung hopes to continue to learn as much as possible at Rubedo and be able to contribute to the field of regenerative medicine.
