I wrote a story this summer for Georgia Magazine, the alumni publication of the University of Georgia, where I went to college. It was fun to renew my UGA ties all the way out here in India.
The article’s a straightforward profile of Dr. Virander Chauhan, who was wonderful to talk with and is involved with a staggering variety of research. As a science geek, I loved it.
But the best part of my experience was when I got to visit the lab. The International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology seems to live up to its name. There were so many students from both India and ICGEB’s other member countries, all working together. The optimist in me (which I admit only emerges rarely) hopes that all this collaboration will extend throughout their careers. It was fun to see their enthusiasm.
