Joseph Loomis (he/him/his) is a senior from Pratt, Kansas pursuing a double major in Biochemistry and Chemistry. In addition to his studies, he is heavily involved in undergraduate research as a member of Dr. Michael Johnson's lab in the Chemistry Department. The group's current research implicates using analytical chemistry techniques, namely fast-scan cyclic voltammetry and liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry, to investigate chemotherapy-induced cognitive impairment, or "chemobrain". Joseph is also actively involved in KU Men's Glee, KU Navigators, and the KU Running Club.
