CBC Continues to celebrate Black History Month by sharing stories of our students.

Eze Tochukwu is a first-year Biochemistry Graduate student, who is currently rotating in Dr. Zhu Haining's research group. Her current research involves the role of RNA-binding proteins in neurodegenerative diseases with a special focus on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Eze chose UArizona for its leading research body that excels in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and other fields. Also, because UArizona has a high ranking in the US, and the world at large.

Being part of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is a good choice for her since the department is strong in its skilled, intelligent research experts constantly executing cutting-edge multidisciplinary research projects to solve global issues. Eze plans to join the industrial sector to design and develop novel therapeutics for diseases.
