Hello everyone! My name is Victor Tan. I am entering Rutgers this fall as a graduate student in Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology. I am a pretty straightforward guy so I’ll just come out and say that I like science. I enjoy the mysteries of the natural world and I think that it is important to take that knowledge to better our society and our standards of living.
My first foray into science were episodes of Bill Nye and The Magic School Bus when I was a kid. I particularly enjoyed the time when they showed the inner works of the human body and how fascinating each cell in our immune system came together to protect the whole thing. Time went on and I pursued science in college as well as in research laboratories, and eventually here! I hope to become a better scientist while keeping sight of the intrigue that got me hooked in the first place.
