Nima Ghorashi

I am a second-year undergraduate student at the University of California, Los Angeles pursuing a major in Biology and a minor in Biomedical Research. I decided to take part in undergraduate research to acquire laboratory techniques, to develop an intuition for conducting scientific experimentation, and to expose myself to research as a career option. Through Dr. Vondriska’s Lab, I look to better understand chromatin structure and how its regulation plays a role in heart disease development. When I am not attending lectures or in lab, I am serving as a director and coach for Southern California Special Olympics at UCLA.
