Alicia Reyes Valenzuela, a PhD student in Biological and Biomedical Engineering at McGill University in Canada, focuses her research on the development of human lung organoids that can be used to study viral infections instead of testing on animals. Her goal is for her work to advance the development and implementation of non-animal models around the world, including in her native country of Mexico.
