Mary Brinkman

As a senior at the University of Notre Dame, I am majoring in Biology with a minor in Science, Technology, and Values. I hope to attend medical or graduate school after Notre Dame. I am especially interested in molecular biology and its role in cancer biology. Outside of lab, I volunteer at Sister Maura Brannick Health Clinic in South Bend. I am an active member of my dorm, Pangborn Hall, where I serve as an academic commissioner, welcome weekend captain, as well as play flag football, basketball, and soccer.
