Hersh Nanda
Helios Scholar

I am an undergraduate researcher currently interning in Dr. Floris Barthel’s lab under the 2023 TGen Helios Scholars Program in Phoenix, AZ. My current research focuses on advancing glioblastoma diagnostics using emerging liquid biopsy techniques.

I am currently attending the University of California, Los Angeles as a pre-med student majoring in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology. I have always been passionate about scientific research, with a particular interest in cardiovascular medicine. It gives me immense joy to discover new things and solve problems.

In my free time, I enjoy swimming with my dog, hiking with my family, and watching movies.
