Congratulations to Arnav Chhabra and Azucena Ramos for receiving the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans! 30 fellowships are awarded each year, each up to $90,000 and supporting up to two years of graduate study, to immigrants or children of immigrants.
Chhabra is currently a graduate student in the HST department at MIT. Right now he is working on creating an on chip model of a liver that will replicate the pathophysiology of human livers to provide a noninvasive study of live function.
Growing up with a love for math and science and a passion to become a doctor, Ramos attended Smith College with a focus on becoming a physician-scientist. She is currently enrolled at Harvard Medical School and her main goal is to bring about major scientific change, contributing to the collective knowledge of the world and empowering underprivileged communities.
