Mao lab alum Siddharth Iyer and current researcher at the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology and Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has been selected as a recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (source: The Hub)

Siddharth Iyer graduated with his bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering (with a biomaterials concentration) in December of 2020. He will pursue his PhD in Bioengineering at MIT this fall and is interested in creating new genetic engineering/biomaterials tools to manipulate cell behavior in multiplex in vivo. Iyer was awarded the fellowship for his proposal for a screening tool to study and manipulate brain aging in vivo using expansion sequencing and multiplexed Cre-dependent recombination. He plans to use the NSF fellowship to access new research opportunities. (source: Johns Hopkins Department of Materials Science & Engineering)

Congratulations Siddarth!
