||Cassandra Chu is an honors student at Fort Lee High School in New Jersey.
She was accepted into the selective Honors Science Research Program at her high school,
and is now under the mentorship of Dr. Antonina Mitrofanova to aid her in her own research journey.
She wants to continue exploring the research process to create a sound foundation for her future career
in the medical sciences. Cassandra’s future plans are to enroll in medical school, and eventually
becoming a dermatologist to improve the lives of patients living with skin cancer.
