Eric KellerPresident: Eric Keller

(ejkeller@iupui.edu)

I am a senior studying biology and chemistry with the hope of attending medical school. I would ultimately like to become a practicing oncologist and clinical ethicist. In my free time, I enjoy running, reading, and spending time with my wife Jennifer. 

This year as a part of the SOSUSC, I hope to increase collaboration between various School of Science clubs, improve facilities, and organize professional opportunities for current students to connect with alumni. If you are interested in talking with me or just hanging out, I will be in the student council office (LD 003) from 10:30-11:45am most Tuesdays and Thursdays.

I am a junior pre-med Biology major, and this year will be my 2nd year involved in the SOSUSC.

My name is Andrew Headrick and I am in my 3rd year here at IUPUI. I will graduate this year with a major in Biology as well as minors in Spanish and Chemistry. I have served in the United States Army for a total of six years; the past four of which have been spent in a reserve status with the National Guard as I pursue my degree. I am also an officer in IUPUIā€™s Chemistry Club and a mentor for the Chemistry PLTL program. In my free time I love playing and watching sports and staying active. I am a big advocate for student involvement and encourage everyone to make the most of their volunteer opportunities! After graduation I hope to attend medical school either in Indiana or Illinois and pursue my MD.

I am a Junior majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry and Classical Studies. I currently work in a Physiology lab in the IU School of Medicine focusing on Acute and Chronic Kidney Disease. Some of my favorite hobbies/past-times are watching science fiction movies and television shows as well as swimming in the IUPUI Natatorium. I have had the good fortune of being highly involved here at IUPUI; but my favorite past time, other than studying for my biology courses and hanging out with the SOSUSC, is planning the 4th Annual IUPUI Regatta that is happening September 22!
