Sean Lombard is an enthusiast for research. A native of Dover, NH, he is majoring in biomedical science: medical and veterinary sciences, with a minor in genetics. A member of the University Honors Program, Sean will graduate in 2017 with a bachelor of science. He conducted research in the UNH Bee Lab as part of the Research Experience and Apprenticeship Program (REAP). He learned that “anything and everything is unique and fascinating. Research is a fun experience as a whole, and much like life, it has its ups and downs.” Sean decided to submit to Inquiry to gain experience in writing about science in a colloquial way, and to share his research with the greater academic community. He strives to become a physician or researcher through a joint MD/PhD program.
