Andrej’s brief CV

I have been lucky to work with great people and to learn from them. Sometimes, we jumped on a beautiful train of thought that carried us away from the dark forests of experimental routine, the busy highways of the rat race, the toxic swamps of administration, and the intellectual deserts of scientific dogma. Sometimes – but not that often...(continue)

Battuvshin’s publications from FeverLab (coming)

During my undergraduate studies in Germany and my native Mongolia, I focused on studying behavioral disorders in humans, particularly psychogenic fevers and malignant hyperthermia. The goal of these clinical studies was to identify the physiological mechanisms underlying thermoregulatory responses to infection and stress in patients. After working...(continue)

I am currently a junior in high school and have been a volunteer in Andrej’s lab for a few hours a week since November of 2011. It has been really fun and educational in the lab since I came here, and I hope to do more in the oncoming years. Aside from being in school and the lab, I enjoy hiking and running with my family early in the morning to beat the Arizona heat.

Contact me via my project leader, Battuvshin Lkhagvasuren

I am from Sierra Leone, the west coast of Africa. I have recently completed my B.S. in Life Sciences at Arizona State University. My dream is to become a medical doctor, and I am trying to gain as much experience as possible related to research and other medical activities. I participated in several research programs and projects (e.g., the Helios Scholars Program at the Translational Genomics Research Institute and the New College Undergraduate Inquiry and Research Experience Program at Arizona State University). I want to be involved...(continue)
