How do I talk about a professors research if I haven’t done research in their area in a why college essay?

The research topic has to do with medicine but I haven’t done research on it. I am interested in the topic though since I am planning to enter the pharmaceutical field.

You don't have to have done research on the topic. You should say why you are interested in the research and what previous experiences with medicine you have (clubs, internships, courses, books, articles, etc.)
