Victor received his B.S. in Microbiology with a minor in Biochemistry from the University in Arizona where he worked under the supervision of Dr. May Khanna in identifying small molecule modulators of TDP43 and Malat1, both implicated in neurodegenerative diseases, using in silico docking and biophysical binding assays. After graduating from the UA, Victor joined the Chemical Biology program in 2020 and joined the Kruse lab in 2021. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his partner and dogs, playing chess, and spending time at the beach.
