spring 2019 ICCE Faculty Fellow: Dr. Leticia Márquez-Magaña

Leticia Márquez-Magaña, Ph.D. is Director of both SF BUILD and the Health Equity Research Laboratory here at SF State. In offering a brief background, her pregnant mother crossed the border to join her father as he came to America through the Bracero program that imported labor from Mexico. As a result of their risk-taking behavior, her parents landed in Northern California, and professor Márquez-Magaña was born in Sacramento. There she began her education as a monolingual Spanish speaker, becoming the first member of her extended U.S. family to complete high school. She then attended Stanford University earning a co-terminal BS/MS degree in Biological Sciences followed by a Ph.D. in Biochemistry at UC Berkeley. She joined the biology department at SF State in 1994 directing her professional efforts to “giving back” to the communities who enabled her to overcome systemic barriers, including national efforts to stereotype her as someone who cannot succeed.  In her time as our second ICCE Faculty Fellow, Dr. Márquez-Magaña has several objectives with her primary aims to increase the number of officially designated community service learning classes in the College of Science and Engineering. This energy will be part of an overall goal to better establish SF State as an anchor institution responsible for locally relevant education and community health.
