Huangcheng is a medical student at the University of Zürich. She is interested to learn how classic chemotherapeutics targeting metabolism work on a molecular level. She is combining systematic literature review with functional analysis using stable isotope tracing and liquid-chromatography mass spectrometry. The goal of her project is to identify and functionally verify the novel sensitivities.
