Jesse Ikeme is a rising senior majoring in biology with a focus in neurobiology. He is currently conducting research on the function of melanopsin, a nonvisual photopigment, and the integrative capacity of the mammalian nonvisual light response in Craig Heller’s lab. Outside of the lab, Jesse enjoys playing basketball and singing with the Stanford Fleet Street Singers. He hopes to attend medical school in the future.
