Major: Biochemistry

Mbongo majored in biochemistry, was a teaching assistant in cellular biology and organic chemistry, a deputy campaign manager during the 2016 West Lafayette City Council elections and an emergency room volunteer at Indiana University Health Arnett Hospital. He received a research grant from the American Heart Association in 2016. He will conduct research on the immunological functions of a newly discovered protein. His research through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program will take him to Paris.

“This opportunity gives me the chance to get further training in biomedical research, with a special focus on oncology and immunology,” he said. “Furthermore, I will be able to establish lifetime connections with French-speaking scientists dedicated to treating disease on a global scale. Having this network of mentors and colleagues will be tremendously helpful in my future work after obtaining a medical degree.”
