Hello! My name is Matt Thimm, and I am a junior 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!

 

Hi, my name is Ana-Maria Nae, and I am a senior studying Neuroscience and Spanish. Currently I am applying to medical school, as I hope to become an ophthalmologist in the (distant!) future. Here at U of M, I am a student research assistant currently developing my honors thesis, and I am an Organic Chemistry study group leader through the Science Learning Center. Also, I am Co-President of the Pre-Medical Club, and I've participated in this club's Alternative Spring Break trip to the Dominican Republic for the past three years. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Neuroscience, Spanish, studying abroad, applying to medical school, or any other general questions!

 

Hello! My name is Karen Lim and I am a neuroscience peer adviser. I'm currently a senior, and have knowledge on many different topics! If you have questions about the neuroscience classes (or any classes in general), need help backpacking, questions about any program in biology majors or minors, or anything regarding academics, I'm sure I can be of help! I also am knowledgeable about pre-health/pre-med requirements and expectations, graduate school, extra-curricular activities and organizations, and general knowledge about ways to get involved.
