Hi my name's Mitch! I am a senior at Trinity University, the #1 Regional University of the West! I am a biology major, a biochemistry researcher, and pursuing a career in medicine with enrollment in medical school for the upcoming school year.

Hi my name's Mitch! I am a senior at Trinity University, the #1 Regional University of the West! I am a biology major, a biochemistry researcher, and pursuing a career in medicine with enrollment in medical school for the upcoming school year. Over the past three years, I have become infatuated with understanding the complexity of the human body, and falling down the rabbit hole of the biological pathways that maintain our well-being.

At Trinity, I participate in research with my biochemistry professor, probing the reactivity of specific metalloproteins in the Electron Transport Chain and their implication in diseased states. Not only did I ace biochemistry the semester that I took it, but I have actually performed many of the techniques that are discussed in the class with my own hands, specifically protein purification. Being a senior member of the lab, I frequently have the job of training newcomers and guiding them toward a deeper understanding of the processes that are occurring. This experience sets me apart from many other tutors that lack a background in research, providing a perspective that resonates with many of the students I interact with.

Having very little exposure to the natural sciences in high school, I know what it feels like to start from the ground up. For that reason I emphasize presenting information in way that is both relatable and easy to digest. I am very adaptable to the individuals that I encounter, having experience tutoring introductory biology students at Trinity and presenting my research to faculty at summer symposiums.

I took the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) three months ago, which covered topics in Biology, Biochemistry, Physiology, and Psychology in great detail and on a very wide scale. Additionally, I have implemented my passion for Nutrition to help me understand human metabolism. These subjects are very fresh on my mind and I strive to learn more and more about them each day .

I want to help students in any way I can and provide the help they need! P

Nutrition

I have largely educated myself on nutrition through my own independent reading and listening. I am very fluent in metabolic pathways ranging from glycolysis, to oxidative phosphorylation, to beta-oxidation and ketosis. My research at Trinity on metalloproteins and their reactivity with metabolites such as 4-hydroxynonenal (4HNE) has provided a platform to understand lipid metabolism and their interaction with reactive oxygen species (ROS). The foods we consume are vital for avoiding metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance, and impact the bioavailability of specific vitamins and minerals humans require to thrive.
