Congratulations to Clare Hotze who was selected as a 2024 Biochemistry Excellence in Research Recipient.

"I have been in the Tomasiak Lab since my freshman year. Throughout my time in the lab, my research has focused on membrane protein-small molecule interactions. I have worked on both mammalian and fungal systems in hopes of identifying amino acids involved in substrate transport. My time at the University of Arizona has taught me how to work as a part of a team, whether that be in a research capacity or on the sand volleyball court with my intramural team!

After graduation, I will attend the University of Kansas Medical School, where I hope to both learn about patient care as well as continue my career in research. I am so grateful for my time at the U of A and for all the professors and mentors I have encountered throughout these past four years. Bear Down!"
