Candice Kim is a rising sophomore majoring in biology with a field of study in molecular and cellular biology. Candice’s interest in research began in high school during which she worked at a USC dermatology lab studying the degenerative skin disease Epidermolysis Bullosa. At Stanford, she continues to pursue her interest in dermatology under the mentorship of Dr. Paul Khavari. Candice is currently working on a project that focuses on the inhibition of lymphocyte-specific PI3K isoforms in inhibiting the growth of Cutaneous T-Cell lymphoma cells. She plans to apply to medical school in the future.
