About Adam

I’m from a very small town in North Carolina, and I grew up next to a dairy farm. I’ve loved working with animals ever since I can remember, including the six years I was a Veterinary Technician. While pursuing my goal to become a veterinarian, at North Carolina State University, I was bitten by the research bug. The latest research project I was involved in investigated using Listeria monocytogenes as a vaccine vector. This project opened my mind to pursuing more interests in immunology such as, development of vaccines or novel immunotherapies. I grew to appreciate clinical pathology and research simultaneously and naturally was drawn to CSU’s residency/PhD program. During my free time I love to ski, hike, bike, eat, and going on walks with my two dogs, Tootsie and Luna.
