Hi, I’m Joshua Hack! I will be a senior in Fall 2021 majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, with minors in Music and Marine Science and will also be starting a Master’s program in Molecular and Cellular Biology. I’ve been working in the Hammer Lab for the last year and a half studying the rare pediatric disease SCN8A Epilepsy caused by changes in the gene that encodes for a specific sodium channel (SCN8A) located in the center of the brain. My project has focused on developing a model to predict the severity of disease outcome in patients based on where in the gene their changes occur. Outside of the lab, I am a bassist in the University of Arizona Symphony Orchestra, and I enjoy hiking, SCUBA diving, cooking, baking, and reading philosophy and world-building fantasy.
