Lance’s interest in Biomedical Engineering stems from his interest in healthcare and his goal to use scientific knowledge to create a better world. When Lance is not working in the Cellular Engineering Laboratory as a research assistant and as a lab assistant for the junior year BME lab, he spends his time being president and co-founder of Columbia Sci-Inspire, an organization that recruits volunteers and sends them into local K-12 schools with disadvantaged minorities hoping to increase the diversity and representation in the STEM field. He is currently working on a senior design project to reduce the transmission of HIV through breast milk in low-resource and developing countries.
