Tyler Bales ’23

Tyler concentrates in General Biology with plans to go to medical school after graduation. On campus, he is a member of Cornell University Sustainable Design, and TAs for CHEM 2070.  He is also engaged in research at the Schroeder Lab, where he studies what factors determine non-enzymatic protein modifications. In his free time, Tyler enjoys running or relaxing on the slope with friends. He also enjoys rock climbing and learning new languages. His favorite class is CHEM 3580: Organic Chemistry for the Life Sciences because he felt that he learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed learning the material. In previous summers, Tyler has stayed on campus to do research in his lab and study for the MCAT. This year, he is looking forward to helping out with BioFest!

Tyler’s words of advice to new students:

“Believing in your ability to succeed is your first step towards success."
