2012 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: Biology
Supported by: The Rose Hills Foundation and Bio-X
Mentor: Olivia Martinez, Professor (Research) of Surgery (Transplantation)

Bryce Small is a rising senior from Santa Ynez, California. He is majoring in biology with a focus in neurobiology. This summer, Bryce is conducting research on neurons to potentially classify a binding partner of MHC Class 1 that regulates neuronal projection outgrowth in Dr. Martinez’s lab. He is very interested in the clinical and pharmacological implications of research and plans to pursue medical school after graduation. Beyond science, Bryce plays club water polo for Stanford and is minoring in art.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 27, 2012:
