Parth is joining the School of Medicine as a Life Science Research Professional for the Department of Pediatrics. As a part of Dr. Christin Kuo’s Lab, Parth is driven to support the team’s mission and actively contribute to the intellectual environment of the lab. He recently graduated from the University of Illinois Chicago with a B.S. in Molecular and Cellular Biology. During his time at UIC, he has been a part of several research projects where he collaborated with Dr. Rhonda D. Kineman to design a research project to investigate variations in hepatic gene expression throughout the phases of the estrus cycle and study the impact of sexual dimorphism in the progression of the nonalcoholic fatty liver. He believes this position would be an excellent opportunity for him to apply his skills while engaging in multidisciplinary projects that would make a real-life impact. He is thrilled to receive this opportunity and looks forward to being a part of the Stanford Community.
