He will carry this initiative and excitement forward into the future.”</p><p> “Michael is an excellent student who works hard and has a positive attitude. Although not a biology major, he did a research project on the behavior of red-winged blackbirds and was a co-author of the resulting paper that was published in Scientific Reports. This study was the first-ever examination of the relationship between genetic expression and overt behavior that used living animals in the wild. Michael will begin graduate work in Molecular Sciences at Arizona State University in the fall.”</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
