Bryn Kennell

(Brumley Lab) I am double majoring in microbiology and psychology. I want to enter a joint MD–PhD program. I aspire to complete a PhD in behavioral neuroscience and a residency in psychiatry. Other than anything and everything microbiology and psychology related, my interests include reading, writing and skiing. I started as a research assistant in Dr. Brumley’s lab in the fall of 2017 and I have loved everything about it. I am excited to work on an independent project this summer!
