Melanie Madrigal is a rising junior in Environmental Toxicology at UC Davis. On campus, she’s a part of the Chondronikola Lab where they study the effects of time-restricted eating on metabolism. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley she got to see the effects that water pollution has on public health. This interested her in the field of toxicology and the role that toxins can play in our bodies. Her current interest is in pharmaceutical toxicology but she’s excited to learn more about toxicology and get to learn from mentors and mentees. After graduation, she plans on pursuing post-graduate studies in toxicology. During her free time, Melanie enjoys cooking, reading, and making a good cup of coffee.
Melanie Madrigal is being mentored by Archit Rastogi.
