I was a student research assistant at the Diwan lab during my undergraduate years. I am now a graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Psychology. The Diwan lab was my first exposure to scientific research and was a formative part of my undergraduate experience. During my time at the Diwan lab, I was extensively involved in Dr. Javaheri’s project looking at the reparative properties of TFEB. Now, I am currently a medical student at Carver College of Medicine.
