Chris is a prospective Ph.D. student in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the Washington State University (WSU) Spokane campus. He has a background in cellular and molecular biology from Eastern Washington University (EWU). His master’s thesis was focused on elucidating the significance of α2,3-linked sialic acid presence on precursor cells for the process of osteoclast differentiation. Chris has a passion for science education, and at EWU served as a tutor, teaching assistant (TA), and small study group facilitator.
