Matthew Ji


I am third year biochemistry major at UCLA. Some of my passions are teaching, waking up early in the morning to run, alto saxophone, and especially juggling. I work on developing highly efficient intracellular molecular delivery devices at the California NanoSystems Institute as an undergraduate research assistant for Dr. Paul S. Weiss’s nanoscience group. I am a volunteer for Happy Feet Clinic, a foot clinic for the homeless. I serve as the Vice President of Educational Materials for The Liver Project, a student-run initiative focused on preventing liver disease, where I develop educational materials about liver disease. I am part of InnoWorks at UCLA because of it provides an incredible opportunity for underserved middle school students and gives me the opportunity to excite and inspire these students to love and pursue science in their futures.

InnoWorks is a Winner of the 2007 BRICK Awards
