My participation in U*STAR (Undergraduate Student Training Academic Research) as a research assistant at Harbor-UCLA working on a Selenium and Vitamin E cancer prevention trial is especially fascinating and gratifying to me as it allows me to give my time in a truly important scientific endeavor, learn from professionals and in a small way help to find a cure for cancer. My ultimate goal is to pursue a Ph.D. in the biomedical field as a nurse re
