"The most rewarding part of working in the lab is seeing all of the support that the community has for the UMBTC."

Hometown: Crystal Lake, Illinois

Year at NMU: Master's Student

Area of Study: Biochemistry

Lab Involvement: Manipulation of bacterial DNA so that proteins, with specific tags, are produced. These proteins, with the addition of the tag, are then able to be easily observed as they travel into the cell.
