Shannen Arviola
Undergraduate research intern (2021)


I am a 4th-year molecular biology & biochemistry student at SFU. Since taking upper-division courses, especially on introductory immunology and molecular physiology, I have become extremely fascinated in the field of vaccine research. After completing two co-op work terms in a local pharmaceutical, I am hoping to utilize my chemistry and molecular biology background to contribute to the Pantophlet Lab. I am excited to explore my passion for biomedical research with the team!

Other Interests

Outside of school and the lab, I enjoy music. I sing and play the guitar and/or ukulele during my free time. I also like listening to podcasts and spoken word poetry. Recently, I’ve been interested in cooking and baking!
