Jeremy Ryan

Jeremy is a graduate student in the lab. He graduated from Drury University in 2017 with a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in Chemistry. He is originally from Camdenton, Missouri. When he is not in the lab he enjoys running, biking, and spending time outdoors. In 2019, Jeremy was named a Center for Science & Engineering of Living Systems (CSELS) Graduate Scholar. In 2021 Jeremy was awarded an NIH NRSA Fellowship from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). Jeremy graduated in 2024 and went on to a post-doc position at Bayer in St. Louis.
