Mentor: Ravindra Majeti, Assistant Professor of Medicine (Hematology)

Linda Yu, a rising junior at Stanford, is currently working in Ravi Majeti's lab in the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine. Her work focuses on identifying and isolating targets in NPM1c+ pre-leukemic stem cells to prevent relapse in patients with NPM1c-mutated AML. Outside of the lab, Linda consumes more fruits and veggies than the typical Homo sapiens, loves discovering musical artists with breathtaking vocals, and is always on the lookout for lyrical prose.
