Abby Hwang is a graduate student at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine.

Studies that have had a significant impact on society always start with a sufficient understanding of fundamental science in the field.

In addition, I hope it would become a cornerstone for knowledge and medications that contribute to human and animal life.
