About Kaitlyn

I am currently an undergraduate studying Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology at Colorado State University. I have also completed an internship in the Penn State Research Training in Oncology and Medicine to Inspire Student Engagement (PROMISE) Program. Through this internship, I researched glioblastoma brain cancer at Penn State University College of Medicine. With my time in research laboratories, I have found that I love exploring and understanding how things function and interact with each other in biological systems.  In my free time I love to be outside hiking, snowboarding and camping with my friends.
