Workshop Description:
Are you interested in Cancer Biology and Genetics? Are you at a Community College and the distance seems far? Do you think you can get into one of the top PhD programs in the country at Stanford? Are you confused about how to get involved in research?
Then you should come and meet Kiarash, who started at Community College and is currently a 4th Year PhD student at Stanford School of Medicine. Come to hear about his journey and ask him questions.
