Jeremy Goodman is a rising senior at Stanford originally from Los Angeles. Jeremy was drawn to Human Biology as a major because of its unique multidisciplinary approach. He is researching the human wrist and is trying to figure out what normal wrist motion is and how it compares to a diseased or injured one. Jeremy chose to study the wrist this summer in hopes of eventually being able to help patients that suffer from wrist diseases that have serious consequences such as carpal tunnel and osteoarthritis. Jeremy hopes that his research will one day benefit medical doctors and patients in diagnosing and treating wrist injury and disease.
