Karl Krieser
Twenty-two undergraduate students are spending the summer at UNMC doing research.

They are called INBRE scholars and are part of the largest grant in UNMC history.

Today we feature Karl Krieser, a junior at the University of Nebraska at Omaha majoring in bioinformatics.

Tell us a little about yourself.
I grew up here in Omaha and went to high school at Millard North High School. Currently at UNO I am on the golf team.

Has science always been a part of your life?

Previous Profiles

I have always thoroughly enjoyed science, whether it was taking extra science classes at school or reading to try and learn more. Ever since I was little I knew science was going to be my career path.

Why did you choose to participate in the INBRE program?
I chose the INBRE program because a couple of my professors suggested that I apply for the scholarship/internship. This program fits perfectly to my interest and my desired future career.

What do you hope to gain from the program?
I hope to gain an insight on what medical research is all about and find areas where I can improve to be a better researcher. This kind of experience will not only expand the way I think, but help me decide exactly what I want in the future.
