Alessandra is interested in stem cell research and regenerative medicine because she believes that this field has the potential to treat various diseases in patients who are unresponsive to current therapies. She is particularly interested in the application of stem cell research to study the development of new cancer therapies. After completing her Master’s degree at Cal Poly, Alessandra wants to pursue a PhD to allow her to combine her interests of research and teaching students.
