My name is Bryan Lickteig and I received my B.S. in Biochemistry and a Master's in Chemistry from Wichita State University. I conducted research on Parkinson's Disease while at Wichita State and love learning, reading, and teaching about the brain and many other subjects. During my time at Wichita State I helped teach General Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, and Instrumental Chemistry labs and was an assistant to the professors in the Chemistry Department. I attended the University of Alabama in Birmingham (UAB) to pursue a PhD in Neuroscience but decided to take another career path. I currently work at the University of Kansas as the Assistant Director of the Genome Sequencing Core and love every minute of it! I also love teaching, though, which is why I want to help students find their passion for science and make it fun but exciting to learn about while also helping students succeed and gain confidence in their abilities.
Undergraduate Degree: Wichita State University - Bachelor of Science, Biochemistry
Graduate Degree: Wichita State University - Master of Science, Chemistry
I love science, math, and the brain. I also like seeing how science is applied in the medical field and taking care of animals (like my 2 dogs :) ). In my free time I like to play racket sports and I am a HUGE fan of racquetball. If you have not played it, you are missing out!
