Graduate Student: Adam Lesiak (Neuroscience)
I was born in Madison, WI on August 21. I spent my childhood moving
around the Midwest United States, spending time in Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and
Arkansas. Eventually my family settled down in the southern part of New Jersey
just outside of Philadelphia in a town called Voorhees, where I attended Eastern
Regional High School.
Colorado State University Graduated Spring, 2006
B.S. in Biological Science, minor in Biomedical Science,
and a concentration in Biomedical Engineering.
Current research topic:
Understanding the Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Abnormal Neuronal
Morphology During Major Depressive Disorder
In short, I am a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan, love indie-rock
music (whatever that means) and also consider myself a bit of a beer
connoisseur. In my free time I like to experiment with home brewing, and have
recently made beers that some may find exotic, such as a hoppy apricot ale, a
black blackberry lager (Robot Love), and a strawberry rhubarb wheat ale. My
other hobbies include getting knee surgeries (I recently completed #4 of my left
knee), and teaching my pet brown-headed parrot, Bowser, new tricks.
