Katherine Leon

Graduate Student in the laboratory of Demet Arac-Ozkan

I chose to attend the University of Chicago because of the strong structural biology research as well as support from research facilities both on campus and at nearby Argonne National Laboratory, both of which have been essential for carrying out my thesis research. In addition, I could see from my campus visit that the University of Chicago values an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment, from the cluster organization which brings together diverse groups of students and faculty to the open lab designs which foster the sharing of ideas and resources.
