In his undergraduate studies, Hank worked in Todd Stukenberg’s lab in the Biochemistry Department researching the Chromosome Passenger Complex and its ability to generate unique biochemistry at the inner centromere. It was in the Stukenberg lab that Hank realized his passion for biochemistry and how it can apply to disease, injury, and healing. Outside of the lab, Hank enjoys trail running, triathlons, weightlifting, rock climbing, art and architecture, and model railroading.
