About Nya: My name is Nya Evans, and I am a senior Chemistry major. During my time here at IC I have been working as a Lab Technician in the Chemistry prep lab, and as a research student in Dr. Scott Ulrich’s lab, where I have studied quorum sensing, Proteolysis Targeting Chimera’s and I am now synthesizing anti cancer compounds for inhibition of GLS1. With the experience and knowledge, I have gained as a Chemistry major, I plan on furthering my education in graduate school in Public Policy and followed by medical school where I hope to eventually become a geriatrician.
