Hi, I’m Tom and I’m a first-year rotation student from Winterset, Iowa. I received my B.S from Iowa State University studying biochemistry while conducting undergraduate research in Animal Science and Immunology. When I arrived at Purdue I was unsure of which area of biochemistry I would like to focus. The rotations have given me the opportunity to experience a diverse group of labs and to be introduced to a variety of topics. When I am not in the lab I enjoy being outdoors and travelling.
