Colton Lysaker

WiSys Ambassador | UW-Platteville

My name is Colton Lysaker and I’m currently a senior at UW-Platteville majoring in biology with a molecular/genetics emphasis. My current research experience, under the supervision of Dr. Mark Levenstein, looks at the differentiation of human embryonic stem cells into functional, beating cardiomyocytes. I have participated in summer research at UW-Platteville analyzing the ability of First Contact™ polymer to remove DNA from various surfaces. As a WiSys Ambassador I’m looking forward to making new connections within the research community and learning about innovation in other fields of study. (Updated 9-3-2019)
