My name is Nicholas Kiger. I am a junior, and I work in the Hadwiger lab. I play tenor trombone in the Cowboy Marching Band, and am a member of Kappa Kappa Psi national honorary band fraternity. I am currently working on a project involving Dictyostelium cell signaling, as stipulated by my Niblack Scholarship. After graduating with an honors degree in microbiology, I will attend graduate school, and eventually get my PHD. My end goal is to conduct research in some capacity-preferably for the CDC.
