"He’s in the top-10 Polish-Russian-Burmese-Australian scientists in the world."
– Peter Witkowski, brother
I have a multidisciplinary background in wildlife biology, veterinary sciences, pathology, public health, and medicine, with one unifying passion: blood.
I am studying biology and music performance at Colorado Christian University with future plans to attend an MD/PhD program. My mother, brother, and I were diagnosed with Li-Fraumeni Syndrome in 2014, a rare cancer disposition that is characterized by a germline mutation in TP53, the “guardian of the genome.” I have a passion for research, playing the flute, Spanish, and all things TP53.
Professional Research Assistant
In college, I said I would never work in a lab, and that I hated microscopes. Look at me now!
All I know is: it’s fun to get to know people, learning is a forever process, and it’s never too late to surprise yourself. I am excited to continue all of that here at CU.
