Doctoral Fellowships for tomorrow's leaders

Chase Stucky

Primary office:

Stucky is a 2017-2021 Self Graduate Fellow pursuing a Ph.D. in chemistry.  He received a B.S. (2017) in chemistry, with a minor in biology, from Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas.  As an undergraduate, Chase developed an unforeseen passion for chemistry and research. He was uncertain how he would use these newfound passions in his future career until his grandma passed away after a difficult battle with dementia. This influenced Chase to pursue a career in which he could apply his background in chemistry to study how the brain works. His current research interest focuses on developing new methodologies to advance our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of neurodegeneration.

Mentor: Michael Johnson, Associate Professor, Chemistry
