Hello, my name is Angelina Martushoff. I’m a junior biology major concentrating in physiology and my minor is Russian. I intend to go into human medicine, specifically the field of infectious diseases, and I love to read books about human infectious diseases (viral, bacterial, or parasitic). I worked in Dr. Podlutsky’s lab here on campus. My project was looking at the genotoxicity (DNA damage) of iq’mik on human cell lines. I also love the Russian language and culture; my family is Russian. I look forward to this class as it relates to microbes that have pathogenic effects on human health.
