Anthony Chiu

Anthony is a medical student at The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. He is interested in the role of computational biology in furthering treatment possibilities in human disease, especially for patient populations with poor prognosis. His interests also include the development of medical products, innovative software, and novel drugs. He is excited to learn new skills in data analysis that he can apply to a future career in medicine.

Anthony graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a B.S. in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, where he focused on Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials research, as well as Biopharmaceutical Development.

Abhinav Adhikari

Abhinav Adhikari is a freshman at the University of Washington, Seattle. He is majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Public Health, while on the Pre-Medicine track. He is interested in bioinformatics and using novel materials for drug delivery systems. In high school, Abhinav focused much of his time on biomedical research, participating in an international collaboration to develop polymers for targeted & accurate drug delivery to cancer tissue. In the future, Abhinav aims to follow a path in medicine and surgery. He plans to work in a health organization to establish safer healthcare and public health measures.

Julia Kao-Sowa

Julia Kao-Sowa is a rising senior at the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology and is interested in the intersection of biological and computational sciences. She has conducted her own research while at Thomas Jefferson in the biotech area exploring treatments for major depressive disorder and worked last summer in the research lab of Dr. Zhenyu Li at GWU creating a microfluidic trap for the capture and analysis of a single cell. Julia is planning on going on to study bioengineering in the fall of 2021 at a yet-to-be-determined university.
