Loyola University New Orleans alumnus Juan Calix, currently pursuing his M.D./Ph.D. at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, will share insider tips on scientific research with first-year biology students. Calix has published six first-author and one contributing-author papers (with three more in the pipeline).
