Cameron A. Schmidt, PhD (PI)
My research is broadly focused on understanding how interactions between the physical microenvironment, cellular energy transformations, and control systems inform the emergent properties of cells and cell collectives. My integrative backgrounds in physiology and biochemistry have afforded me the flexibility to pursue relevant problems in a variety of translational research contexts including cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, cancer, systems pharmacology. My current and future work aims to solve basic and applied problems in animal fertility and reproduction. ECU Website
Ben Brisard, B.S.
I'm from Wake Forest North Carolina and completed my B.S. in Biology at ECU. I am pursuing an interdisciplinary Biology/Biochemistry PhD and am developing empirical and computational approaches to better understand (and predict) mammalian fertility. Following completion of my doctoral training, I plan to pursue a post-doctoral training abroad.
Ethan Carrow, A.S.
Chelsea Dennis, A.S.
Logan Harrison, A.S.
I am from Raleigh, I originally thought I would be a Broadway actor, but after a few experiences in medicine with the EMS and shadowing I found that being a doctor is my calling. I am currently studying for the MCAT and checking off all the boxes necessary to be the best applicant possible to medical schools. Being a biology and chemistry major solidifies the knowledge I need to become a better physician.
I am working towards completion of my Mathematics/Computer Science degree as part of the Honors College, EC Scholars program, and early assurance program to the Brody School of Medicine. I hope to pursue a career in research and make scientific advancement in the field of medicine. My course of study has provided me with a level of mathematical understanding higher than that of a typical undergraduate student. This has allowed me to expand my skillset in coding to be more efficient, which is a useful method to use in research.
Come learn with us
We have training opportunities for interested students to come learn with us and get involved in our research. We also look for ways to provide research experiences for students who don't have the time or capability to be physically present in the lab by offering remote training opportunities focused on computationally intensive projects (no previous computation skills required). Interested students can inquire by sending a Curriculum Vitae (CV) to email@example.com.
