My name is Briggs Carhart and I will be a senior this fall at the University of Arizona majoring in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science, Molecular and Cellular Biology and Physiology with minors in Biochemistry and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. My goal is to become a physician with a specialty in neurology. I am currently a research assistant in Dr. Wulfila Gronenberg’s Lab studying the olfactory/chemosensory network in the arachnid central nervous system because there’s little known about the arachnid brain. If I’m not in the lab, I am usually still on campus as a Resident Assistant (Coronado 2015, Coronado 2016, Villa del Puente 2017).
The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. As well, they get a chance to share the music and interests that motivate them.
Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.
Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM
Created by Cathy Rivers, produced by Bridgitte Thum.
