Lyanne completed a double major in chemistry and biology from Icesi University, Colombia. She pursued studies across different scientific areas, including biochemical engineering and pharmaceutical science. Lyanne joined the Shroyer/Escobar-Hoyos Laboratory to focus on the investigation of a novel cancer precision medicine approach. She is currently working on a project that utilizes multiplex immunohistochemistry to characterize the tumor microenvironment in pancreatic cancer in tumors that do and do not express the Keratin 17 biomarker to determine if any differences correlate with patient outcomes and treatment responses. This work has the potential to identify signatures that can help guide patient clinical management. She is currently a senior student in the Basic Baccalaureate Nursing Program at Stony Brook University and her future goal is to become a nurse-scientist to perform groundbreaking research that links theory and patient-based evidence with clinical practice.
