Christopher Bays

I am a senior anticipating graduation in December 2014.  I am double majoring with a B.S. Biotechnology and a B.S. Cognitive Science, with a minor in both chemistry and math.  I have research experience in the Graduate Biotechnology Research Lab under supervision of Dr. Robert Vaughan.  I am a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Delta Epsilon.  I participated in the Kelley Center for Business of Life Sciences program and received the associate certificate.  In the summer of 2013 I participated in the internship program at Cook Pharmica and continued working with the company through the end of the 2013 calendar year.  I am a premed student with an interest in neuroscience and oncology. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at
