Hello! My name is Adam Casillas and I am a first year intended to major in MCB: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and a minor in chicano studies. I’m from Long Beach, California, and I haven’t gotten involved with CHE until this semester. Last semester I only showed up to the first and last meetings, but I knew that this was an organization that I want to be involved in. I’m hoping to join an MD/PHD program after graduating from Cal, and become a physician scientist. Along my career I also hope to mentor other aspiring latinx STEM students as well.
