They are called INBRE scholars and are part of the largest grant in UNMC history.
Today we feature Karl Krieser, a junior at the University of Nebraska at Omaha majoring in bioinformatics.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I grew up here in Omaha and went to high school at Millard North High School. Currently at UNO I am on the golf team.
Has science always been a part of your life?
Why did you choose to participate in the INBRE program?
I chose the INBRE program because a couple of my professors suggested that I apply for the scholarship/internship. This program fits perfectly to my interest and my desired future career.
What do you hope to gain from the program?
I hope to gain an insight on what medical research is all about and find areas where I can improve to be a better researcher. This kind of experience will not only expand the way I think, but help me decide exactly what I want in the future.
