My name is Matthew Talmage. I am currently a senior at the University of Utah and I am studying Biology with aspirations to attend Medical School following graduation. I am from Layton, Utah and have always wanted to attend the University of Utah. I joined the Clayton-Bush lab in September 2016 and have been working with Andrew Bartlow. I am interested in knowing if parasitic species diversity differs as a result of elevation change. I have learned a lot about lab procedure and the scientific method during my time in the lab. I am currently extracting DNA and running PCR to identify parasitic helminths found in rodents.

Outside of the lab, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am an avid sports fan and participate on several sports teams. I am extremely passionate about baseball and play whenever the opportunity presents itself.
