Portrait of Michael Kerins
he, him, his

Following graduation from the University of Wisconsin with a BS in biochemistry, Michael Kerins worked as a product developer for Kimberly-Clark Corporation.  Because K-C manufactures FDA-regulated medical devices, Michael interacted with PhD-level toxicologists to navigate the intersection of technology, consumers, business, and regulation. Interested in the profession, Michael found the University of Arizona’s Pharmacology and Toxicology graduate program matched his intellectual and career interests perfectly.  He eagerly anticipates the opportunities at the UA and University Fellows Program and hopes to research toxicological mechanisms, quantitative biology, signal transduction, or metabolism.
