Andrew Kunihiro has a BS in Bioengineering and a MS in Nutritional Science. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Nutritional Sciences, where his research will focus on the relationship between bioactive compounds in food and cancer. Specifically, he will examine whether certain compounds in food increase or decrease the risk of developing cancer or if they affect tumor progression and outcomes for those who already have cancer. His undergraduate focus was on microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip diagnostics, which he hopes to leverage during his doctoral studies.
