My name is Cristina Santana and I’m a Senior in Biology at Iowa State. I’m originally from Puerto Rico and came to Iowa for the first time three years ago for college. I have worked with a toxicology laboratory for the past year and that experience made me interested in doing the ToxMSDT program.
I hope to go to Grad School after college and do toxicology research. Hopefully in the future I pursue an MD/PhD which has always been a dream of mine. On campus I’m very involved in my sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, volunteering within the Ames community and participating in a number of philanthropic events throughout the year.
