The Aneja lab was diverse with people coming from various races and nationalities. This was demonstrated in the lab meetings, where we discussed a plethora of solutions to multiple problems in cancer biology. Here, I also understood that research is more collaborative than competitive. The Aneja lab was beyond just lab work. Lab retreats were equally fun and productive. Projects and future tasks were discussed while cooking and eating tasty food. Dr. Aneja taught me how to make ‘round chapatis’ and her special paneer masala. My experience at GSU really shaped me to think more clearly about my future in research.

Khorana Scholars

The Khorana Program for Scholars was named in honor of Dr. Har Gobind Khorana, who won the Nobel Prize in 1968 for his work at the interface of Chemistry and Biology while a faculty member of UW Madison. The Khorana Program provides opportunities to Indian students to undertake research at U.S. based universities each summer for a period of 10-12 weeks.
