All of us at Bach Pharma would like to congratulate our intern Vikram Daesety on his successful completion of the Boston University undergraduate program in just two years, all while working at Bach for nine months and donating his time at Children’s Hospital. What makes this so exciting is that Vikram was able to complete his studies in only 2 years! He was accepted into the BU Medical School at the end of his sophomore year. In a recent note to Bach CEO, Mark Henry, Daesety wrote,
"Today was the first day of my second semester of junior year and it's hard to believe that I'll be done with undergrad soon. I've begun taking classes at BU medical school which have a unique focus of integrating clinical contexts into the basic sciences. As of now, my interests have shifted towards studying immunology, especially in its clinical application towards asthma and cancer therapies. I am also preparing to take the MCAT in May, and studying for that is taking up a lot of my free time. I still visit Dr. Berry's lab once or twice a week, and I don't have any major projects there as of now. I mainly assist with patient database management and image analysis of cerebral organoids. Dr. Berry's main project now is developing cerebral organoids in vitro which mimic fetal brain development. The goal is to understand how galactose is toxic to the brain in the fetal and newborn periods. This project is very exciting, and we have just reached 100 days of growing the organoids."
Again, congratulations to Vikram!
