Mentor: Mark Pegram, Professor of Medicine

Alex Lindqwister is a rising junior majoring in biomedical computation (informatics track). Presently, Alex works on truncated ERBB2 amplified genes and lipid raft association in the Pegram lab. His academic interests involve using computer science to address problems in molecular biology. Alex plans on co-terming in biomedical computation and on eventually going to medical school.
