Michael Rigby, BS '14

MD/Ph.D. Student

Michael is from Glen Ellyn, IL and is currently residing in Madison, WI. He is a 2014 graduate and is currently in the 5th of 8 years of an MD/Ph.D. program in Neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Michael says that MCB offered him a plethora of resources and diverse coursework with the ability to focus on a particular area of interest. "I took advantage of gaining more in-class laboratory experience as well as taking additional neuroscience-related MCB courses that prepared me well for my MD/Ph.D. curriculum."

Michael's favorite memory from undergrad is relaxing on the quad on a warm spring day.

Michael has some advice for current and new MCB students: "Find 1-2 extracurricular activities you enjoy and get super involved. Do not try to spread yourself too thin."
