Northern Kentucky University

About Northern Kentucky University

NKU is a growing metropolitan university of more than 14,000 students served by more than 2,000 faculty and staff on a thriving suburban campus near Cincinnati.

Located in the quiet suburb of Highland Heights, Kentucky—just seven miles southeast of Cincinnati—we have become a leader in Greater Cincinnati and Kentucky by providing a private school education for a fraction of the cost. While we are one of the fastest growing universities in Kentucky, our professors still know our students' names.

“During this project, I had the opportunity to earn valuable skills in the lab environment. I learned how to culture cells, perform ATP assay, and use and maintain lab instruments. More importantly, I learn how to troubleshoot experiments, think like a scientist, and plan and organize experiments. Though my result is negative, things that I learned from the experience would be very helpful for my future career path. ”
