Welcome to my website! My name is Sapana Vora and I am currently a graduate student in cancer biology at the University of Chicago in (you guessed it) Chicago, Illinois. I am an avid reader and writer and thought a blog would be a nice way to chronicle my time in the Windy City and sharpen my writing skills. You know, in case the whole cancer thing doesn’t really work out.
Just kidding; writing is an important part of science research. While most of my posts will highlight events or thoughts outside my academics, I will devote a page to my research with explanations of study design, key aspects of cancer biology, the disease I’m focusing on, and even some analytical tips and strategies.
In my free time I’m also honing my photographic and culinary skills, so expect pretty photos of food (and of not-food). If there’s a picture you really like, let me know and I can send you a high-res .jpeg.
So feel free to surf around, maybe find a recipe or two, and thanks for stopping by!
