Meet Our Peer Advisors ...

Hi! My name is Nico, and I am a senior majoring in Biology with the intention of attending medical school after graduation. I am also minoring in Medical Anthropology due to my interest in learning about different cultures and societies from around the globe. On campus, I am a penpal through K-Grams and am also involved in oSTEM. During my spare time, I can be found drawing or doing Zumba!  Please do not hesitate to come and visit me during my office hours to talk about the different Biology majors, course planning, the pre-health track, or to just have some tea and chitchat.

Greetings! My name is Jolyna and I am a senior double majoring in Biology, Health, and Society and Gender and Health. On campus, I am the Vice President of the Black Undergraduate Medical Association, volunteer in SAPAC, and Co-Chair of the Future Physicians Summit! I am passionate about Black Women's maternal health and health disparities in West Africa. Off campus, I am one of the founders of the Young Cameroonian Association and enjoy fashion styling, dancing, and cooking.  Feel free to visit me during my office hours to discuss majors in biology, the pre-health track, course planning, or simply chat! I look forward to meeting you!

Hi! My name is Andrew, and I am a senior majoring in Microbiology. After graduation, I plan on attending graduate school. I currently work in the Schloss Lab, which focuses on the human microbiome with respect to C. difficile infection and colorectal cancer. My individual research focuses on the production of bacteriocins in the microbiome and how they can prevent C. difficile colonization and infection. On campus, I also am the President of the Michigan Microbiology/Immunology Club, work in the Science Learning Center, and compete for the Michigan Mock Trial team. I’m excited to meet with you and answer your questions about the biology majors and courses you can take, how to get involved in research, and graduate school planning. Hope to see you soon! Thanks!

Hello! My name is Maxwell, and I’m a senior majoring in Biology, Health, and Society and minoring in International Studies. I’m interested in the cellular and molecular causes of chronic diseases and its burden on global health. I’ve been involved in a lab studying the molecular genetics of the retrovirus HIV-1 in addition to a community health research program overseas. On campus, I volunteer at the University Hospital and I’m a member of the African Student Association. Off campus, I provide HIV test/prevention counseling and enjoy cooking. Feel free to visit me during my peer advising hours to talk about research, course planning, or majors in the biology program; I would be happy to meet with you!
