Meet Emily Tung (she/her)

Hey everyone! My name is Emily Tung, and I'm a junior majoring in MCB and minoring in computer science and chemistry. My career goal is to become a physician-scientist. I conduct research in the UIUC Comparative Bioscience department, investigating the roles of hnRNPI/PTBP1 under Wenyan Mei. Outside of class and research, I volunteer as a Carle Student Leader and Champaign County Christian Health Center Hospitality Volunteer/Fundraising Associate. Outside of academics, I like to cook, spend time with friends, and exercise (running, biking, etc.).  I remember how exciting and confusing freshman year can be, so feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about anything!
