Jacob Kallenbach- President
My name is Jacob Kallenbach and I am a third year Biomedical Engineering major pursuing a minor in Psychology. I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, watching How I Met Your Mother, listening to Jack Johnson and Macklemore, and I love playing soccer for the UC Men’s Club Soccer team. On campus, I am involved in the Biomedical Engineering Society, CEAS Ambassadors, the National Kidney Foundation’s kidney walk/ 5K, and the Arthritis Foundation’s walk. Since April 2012, I had the incredible opportunity to work in Hong Lab for Computational and Molecular Biology, which has the vision to understand molecular mechanisms of circadian rhythms and their interconnected network with other cellular processes such as cell cycle, DNA damage response, and metabolism in Neurospora Crassa. Specifically, I worked on over-expressing numerous core genes, involved in such cellular processes, and then I observed, collected, and recorded data from these over-expression constructs. I hope to share these eclectic experiences with my fellow undergraduate students and enlighten them to the plethora of opportunities offered at UC.
