His passion is bugs—all types, but especially scorpions and spiders. His ultimate career goal is to work for the Smithsonian Institute, where the entomology collection is the largest in the world. Alex Martinez, 23, wants to research proteins of venomous insects in order to find a solution to combat diseases of the human nervous system.
In order to accomplish his career goal, Martinez is currently pursuing a baccalaureate degree in Biology at Sul Ross State University (SRSU). Through a cooperative agreement between Midland College (MC) and SRSU, Martinez is able to complete all his coursework, including intensive laboratory classes, on the main MC campus. He will graduate in August and then plans to immediately begin taking graduate courses leading to a master’s degree in Biology.
