My Bass Connections Pathway

June 29, 2015

Dominic Lucero participated in the Bass Connections project team, Environmental Epidemiology in Latin America.

“When I first met with Dr. Pan to discuss ideas for my master’s thesis he mentioned the possibility of working with leishmaniasis, and I jumped at the chance to work with a neglected vector-borne disease. I’ve always enjoyed studying infectious diseases and I was looking for a chance to practice Spanish, so this was a perfect fit. Bass Connections was a really good way to participate in a larger research project that gave me more data to work with. I wrote my thesis on what we found, and I’m adapting it for an article in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene."
