Hello all! My name is Sara, a third year student at SDSU majoring in biochemistry and minoring in Chinese.
I recently finished a research summer program, the Amgen Scholars Program, in Japan. Thanks to the Amgen Foundation, I was able to conduct research at the laboratory of plasma membrane and nuclear signaling at Kyoto University, under the guidance of Yoshimura-sensei and Kumeta-sensei. I made a brief video about my experiences in Japan, such as visiting temples and shrines, attending scientific seminars, and attending field trips with my program, etc. I hope you enjoy watching it! Please feel free to ask questions or comment about my experiences.
I am now studying abroad in Xiamen, China through Spring 2016, so stay tuned for the upcoming videos. Thank you!
Sara Torres-Robles is earning a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry at San Diego State University. She is video blogging from Xiamen, China for the 2015-2016 academic year.
