November Scientist Spotlight

Hello everyone! For our November scientist spotlight, we our honoring our very own, Carlos! He is from South San Francisco. His father’s from Mexico, and his mother is from Venezuela. He is currently an undergraduate researcher in Dr. Mark Chan’s lab, where he’s working on elucidating the interaction between vacuole size and vacuole pH in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. He was drawn to SACNAS by their diversity and sense of community. He felt a reverse culture shock with them, and it left a big impact on his perception of the scientific community! He loves the diversity of SFSU’s campus where he gets to see and hear different viewpoints on a regular basis! In his free time he like to socialize with my friends and play competitive video games. In 10 years, he sees himself in the biotech industry as a head scientist, working towards discovering cures and medicines to help the community. Give it up to our November scientist of the month!
