Boston Area Alumni Chapter

At multiple institutions in the Boston, Massachusetts Area, former Khorana Bose scholars who returned to pursue graduate studies have agreed to be apart of a new Khorana Bose Alumni Chapter!



Abdul Majeed-  “I got my PhD at Johns Hopkins working on designing and synthesis of complex nucleic acid based nanostructures and I currently work as a scientist at Ultivue, where we are developing reagents that would allow high multiplexing of biomarkers in situ.”





Abhinav Gupta “I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology studying Bayesian Learning of Coupled Ecosystem-Physical Models for the Ocean.”




Arkopal Dutt “I am at Massachusetts Institute of Technology working on developing efficient and robust algorithms for Bayesian inference in stochastic dynamical systems. I am also interested in interpretable machine learning techniques for model learning and selection.”





Deepshikha Dogra “I am studying endocrine regulation of stress physiology in an animal using C. elegans as the model at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. ”






Jishnu Das “I am currently a postdoctoral researcher working at MIT and the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard. I use computational systems biology approaches to elucidate mechanisms of natural and vaccine-induced immunity in HIV, malaria and tuberculosis.”  





Kalki Kukreja “I am studying the role of cell cycle in determining cell fate in Dr. Allon Klein’s laboratory at Systems Biology Department at Harvard Medical School.”





Nirjana Natarajan “I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at Harvard University. My work is focused on understanding events occurring in early cardiac regeneration, in order to shed light on how injury and diet affect regenerative processes at the molecular level.”





Vivek Kumar Dwivedi-  “I am studying the mechanisms of cell extrusion, a form of caspase-independent programmed cell death, in C. elegans atMassachusetts Institute of Technology.”
