My name is Kait Weihofen. I'm studying biology with an emphasis in pre-medical studies at the University of St. Francis. Some of my academic and research interests include medicine, pathology, microbiology, and psychology.
My goal is to become either a psychiatrist or pathologist, but I also have an interest in pharmacy as well.
I'm currently working with Dr. Megan Powell of University of St. Francis and Dr. Timothy Comar of Benedictine University researching vaccination strategies and disease modeling for Devil Facial Tumor Disease (DFTD). DFTD is a transmissible cancer affecting a large population of Tasmanian devils putting them at severe risk for extinction.
