Jared joined the lab Spring 2011 to work with graduate student Stephen Yee on the genetics of gametophyte/sporophyte transition in Physcomitrella patens. While Jared is planning on med school, he is fascinated by plants and has real potential to be sucked into the world of plant developmental biology. He was awarded a SURF Rose Hill fellowship to continue his research on VEF gene evolution in bryophytes over the summer of 2012 and is completing an Honor's Thesis for 2013.
Major: Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB 2013); biochemistry and molecular biology track. Honors.
Jared will be attending UTMB starting Fall 2013.
