Hello! My name is Matt Thimm, and I am a senior in Cellular & Molecular Biology. I am planning on attending medical school after graduation, but I would like to be involved in research to some capacity in my career. I currently work in a lab in the Cancer Center looking at virally driven head and neck cancers. I am an SSG leader for Chem 210H, and I also am involved in two student organizations on campus: Motley Crew and InnoWorks. Motley Crew puts on themed events for children, patients, and family members at many hospitals and autism centers in the area. InnoWorks provides a free summer science camp to underprivileged youth in the greater Ann Arbor community. I am available to answer questions related to research, classes in our department or science classes in general, getting involved in volunteer opportunities and student organizations on campus, and any general questions you may have about majors!
