Student Profile(s)

Nitin Bohra

"During my undergraduate, I was amazed by the coordination of different metabolic and regulatory pathways. I wanted to understand how these well-coordinated systems give rise to what we call “living systems”. The Matter to life program is the perfect choice for me where I could understand what life is from the perspective of Biology, Chemistry and, Physics during the Master’s phase and then continue in the area of my interest in the PhD phase."
