The first research experience that exposed me further to endocrinology was as an undergraduate student at the University of Texas, where I participated in aptamer research in a lab that had automated the process of in-vitro selection. I discovered that the principles of aptamer research could be applied to thyroxin-binding globulin (TBG) with the goal of a therapeutic approach to hypothyroidism. I was ultimately able to present the research at an undergraduate research forum and this stimulated an interest in thyroid disorder research.
