Biography

Julia Roche is a senior high school student and an active participant in a San Diego Science Alliance program called BE WiSE (Better Education for Women in Science and Engineering). Through BE WiSE, she has participated in multiple science related workshops and academies. Of these, her favorite was the Oncofertility Saturday Academy. This eight-week summer program allowed her to study oncofertility, the preservation of cancer treatment patients' fertility, through weekly labs at places such as the UCSD Moores Cancer Center and an in vitro fertilization clinic. Through this academy, she created a scientific poster that was displayed at the 2010 and 2011 Oncofertility Consortium in Chicago. Julia also pursued and participated in two separate internships due to her connections through BE WiSE and her high school. The first was a four-week long internship at the UCSD Scripps Institute of Oceanography where she researched special proteins in sea urchins. The second was an eight-week long internship at Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) where she worked in the robotics lab. She plans on graduating from high school and majoring in engineering at a four-year university.
