2011 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: undeclared
Supported by: Bio-X
Mentor: Calvin Kuo, Professor of Medicine (Hematology) and of Chemical and Systems Biology

Lilly Shi, class of 2014, is from Salt Lake City, UT and loves working with Calvin Kuo, MD/PhD and Kelley Yan, MD/PhD this summer. Her project lies in the boundary between medicine and materials science in which she is attempting to improve and control intestinal stem cell proliferation in protein-engineered hydrogels. While she still has no idea what she’d like to major in, she is avidly interested in medicine, engineering, literature, and creative writing. When she is not in the lab, she can be found swimming, hiking, or reading in the California sun.
