Home Department: Biology
Supported by: Bio-X
Mentor: Laura D. Attardi, Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Biology) and of Genetics

Carolyn Sinow is a junior at Stanford University. She is majoring in biology with a specific interest in genetics and molecular and cellular biology. Carolyn is excited to be part of the research effort at Stanford. This summer, she is working in the Attardi laboratory to characterize target genes of the p53 transcriptional regulator to better understand the p53 tumor suppression pathway. She has also conducted research on the accessibility of family planning methods in northern Peru.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 27, 2012:
