Nick Gutsche, B.S.
Nick is interested in the chemistry of engineering imaging, therapeutic and drug bioconjugates to specific tumor targets. He is also interested in understanding the role of radiation during these processes.
1) organic chemistry, 2) targeted delivery, 3) bioconjugate chemistry
Originally from Wilmington, Delaware, and a graduate of Kenyon College (Chemistry ’17) Nick’s interest in imaging and targeted delivery stems from his research at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Science, as well as his time working in the labs of Professor Yutan Getzler of Kenyon College and Professor Virgil Percec of the University of Pennsylvania. At the NIH, Nick is seeking to widen his perspective of the fields of targeted delivery and medicine via the synthesis and application of imaging and radiotherapeutic bioconjugates. Fluent in German and proficient in Chinese, Nick loves learning about new languages, cultures and people. After his time at the NIH, Nick plans on pursuing an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. program where he can combine his interests in people, medicine and chemistry to successfully contribute to those fields.
