Jeremy's House

Jeremy Mitchell is a student at San Diego State University. Jeremy transferred to SDSU from Grossmont Community College in the Fall of 2013 as a Physics major. He has been mentored and conducts research in the lab of the esteemed Dr. Paul Paolini, Ph.D. for the past three years in the field of cardiac dynamics. He has received several honors and awards for his research, including the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) award in cell biology as well as an award in cardiac biology at the Scientific Research Symposium held at San Diego State University. He has interned and mentored for the NIH funded Bridges to the Future program after participating in it as a student. The opportunity to give back to the system which has propelled him forward to achieve this dreams is an enormous honor to him. He is the current President of the SDSU chapter for the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) and is pursuing his undergraduate degree in Physics with an emphasis in biophysics. One of his many goals is to work with computerized, mechanical prosthetics and integrate them into the nervous system, allowing for cognitive thought to control the prosthetic limb as well as to allow for nervous system feedback from sensors in the prosthetic device to stimulate the nervous system to allow perceived sensations. He also has a an enormous enthusiasm and passion for working with the Mars One Project. Through hard work and dedication he intends on pursuing a Ph.D. in Biophysics and someday run a research lab of his own and teach. As a first generation college student, preparing for graduate school has been a challenge he has accepted.
