José Rodriguez-MolinaJosé Rodriguez-Molina is a fifth year PhD student in the Cellular and Molecular Pathology program at UW–Madison and the School of Medicine Public Health.

Rodriguez-Molina’s research looks at the Sox10-downstream genes. Sox10 controls essential genes for the identity of Schwann cells, therefore, making it an important transcription factor for the peripheral nerve system. Rodriguez-Molina’s research goal is to determine the Importance of Sox10 genes in Schwann cell Biology.

Upon graduation, Rodriguez-Molina plans to pursue a career in public policy in STEM education.
