"My advice to students is to make use of all the resources available at Pace, as every success starts with a first step."
– Zuleen Chia Chang, Class of 2016
I was first drawn to Pace because of the small size of its classes and location in New York City. Once here, my interest in how different organisms live and function led me to major in Biology and minor in Neuroscience. As part of the Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research program at the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, I have worked with Professor Zafir Buraei, studying mutations in ion channels and how their impaired functionality is associated with neurological disorders such as epilepsy. We recently presented our work at the Northeast Under/Graduate Research Organization for Neuroscience (NEURON) conference and won the Cheryl Frye Pioneering Research Award. Upon graduation, I would like to work in the medical field, with a possible focus on research. My advice to students is to make use of all the resources available at Pace, as every success starts with a first step.
