Meet Joseph Jung

Hello everyone! My name is Joseph and I am a junior majoring in MCB Honors with a minor in chemistry. I am an out-of-state student from the Bay Area in California. On campus, I am involved involved in undergraduate research in Dr. Hee Jung Chung's lab, studying the STEP protein and its role in regulating excitatory transmission in the brain during epilepsy. Over the summer, I was able to research extensively through the SURF program from the SMCB. Aside from research, I am also a volunteer at Carle Foundation Hospital in the Emergency Department, and am involved in Carle RSO. Some things I like to do in my free time is watching movies, trying new foods, and playing the piano. Feel free to reach out with any questions on the MCB major, coursework, or research!
