Izzy is a junior at Harvard studying Molecular and Cellular Biology. Her research interests include synthetic biology, microbial communities, and sustainable technologies. She currently works in the Church lab designing cyanobacteria-based photosynthetic biomaterials. Outside of lab Izzy enjoys reading, buying way too many plants, and hunting for tardigrades.
Benjamin is a junior at Harvard studying Chemical and Physical Biology and Computer Science. He is interested in developing gene circuits for therapeutics and using machine learning for biology to help people and the planet. Outside of lab, you can find him dodging tourists on his skateboard, sleeping in the observatory, or reading about giant trees.
Ian is a senior at Harvard studying Integrative Biology with a secondary in Global Health and Health Policy. An automatic fan of anything science-related, he is especially passionate about issues at the intersection of business and biology. He has explored these interests through his casework at the Life Sciences Consulting firm Health Advances. Ian is also an avid lover of hiking, language learning, guitar, and giving his dogs many (unwanted) hugs.
Audrey is a sophomore at Harvard studying Molecular and Cellular Biology and Government. She currently studies drug repurposing for various retinal diseases in the Kim Lab at Mass Eye and Ear. Outside of the lab, Audrey enjoys exploring coffee shops, watching Formula 1, and dancing in the Asian American Dance Troupe.
Ayush Noori is a sophomore in Adams House studying Neuroscience and Computer Science. Working in labs across the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the Wyss Institute, Ayush seeks to further the effort to ameliorate the global burden of human neurological disease. Beyond research, Ayush enjoys bird watching and meditation, and is an avid consumer of mangoes.
Hugh Is a first year at Harvard planning to study both Biomedical Engineering and Anthropology. He currently works in the Mooney Lab for Cell and Tissue Engineering, conducting research on interactions between T cells and biomaterials to facilitate enhanced immune responses. His other research interests include nucleic acid therapeutics and tissue engineering. Outside of lab, Hugh enjoys reading, playing chess, and exploring Boston by bike.
Rohil is a sophomore at Harvard studying Biomedical Engineering and Chemistry and Physics. He most recently worked at Visterra, an antibody-based therapeutics company, where he worked on predicting immunogenicity of antibodies and T-cell epitope binding for MHC Class I and II molecules. His interests lie in drug discovery and design, as well as entrepreneurship. Outside of the lab, Rohil fearlessly leads Harvard's powerlifting team and enjoys playing tennis and chess.
