In this episode, we talk to Dr. Armani about her background, her experiences in every field of science, and her path to becoming a chemical engineering professor here at USC. We also talk about her incredible interdisciplinary lab, where she is simultaneously creating switches to make internet faster, attempting to cure cancer, and fabricate better materials. Finally, we talk about the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience, which will foster biomedical discovery, innovation and real-world solutions to fast-track detection and cures for diseases ranging from microbial infections to Alzheimer’s and cancer.
