Primary office:

Jay Shah is currently a senior majoring in biochemistry (B.S.), minoring in psychology, and will be attending Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine for medical school in the fall. He's from Overland Park, KS and a graduate of Blue Valley Northwest High School. During his undergraduate career he has been involved with research at the KU Med Cancer Research Center, a Neurobiology lab here at KU as well as Neurosurgery research at Saint Louis University Hospital. He enjoys teaching and mentoring so he has been involved with the Honors Program Peer Mentoring group, Big Brothers Big Sisters as well as working as a supplemental instructor for Organic Chemistry through Peer Led Undergraduate Supplement (PLUS) Program. He is also committed to working with local and global communities to advocate for and provide them with their healthcare needs through his work on the Executive Board for MEDLIFE KU. Jay is also involved with Greek life at the University and enjoys the camaraderie and friendships it has brought him

Ask me about: being pre-med (such as research, MCAT, and studying biochemistry and psychology), the cool things he enjoys being involved with outside of school, and Greek Life.
