Chase Stucky

Primary office:


Chase Stucky is a 2017-2021 Self Graduate Fellow pursuing a Ph.D. in chemistry from The University of Kansas.  He received a B.S. (2017) in chemistry, and a minor in biology from Bethel College, North Newton, KS.  As an undergraduate, Stucky’s plans to go to medical school took a different direction as he developed an unforeseen passion for science and research. After witnessing his grandma’s battle with dementia, Stucky became interested in studying how brains work on a fundamental level. Stucky’s current research involves using electrochemistry and microscopy to study the neurotransmitter dynamics within the brains of zebrafish to better characterize their potential as a neurological model.
