Alanis Carmona, HealthLab Fellow
Alanis Carmona is a doctoral candidate in the Biological Sciences in Public Health program (BPH) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Alanis is from Chicago, IL and went to Bates College in Lewiston, ME where she obtained a degree in Biochemistry (major), Chinese (minor), and Public Health (concentration). She is a member of the Ubellacker Lab at T.H Chan where she will be looking at metabolomic and lipidomic profiles in breast cancer metastasis.
Before joining the BPH PhD program, she was a technician at The University of Chicago looking at the ECM microenvironment and its influence on obesity and T2D. Her time spent at UChicago inspired her to continue research linked to metabolic illness to elucidate new and innovative ways to understand and contribute to the development of therapeutic options for many. She is thrilled to be part of BPH community and looks forward to exploring new facets of metabolic related illness throughout her PhD career. She is even more excited to be part of the LPCE initiative through Health Lab and hopes to help shine light on current societal issues that encompass public health and beyond.
