ISB is proud to announce that Sriram Chandrasekaran, one of our predoctoral scientists in the Nathan Price group, has received one of 10 Harvard Junior Fellowships. This prestigious fellowship grants Sriram the opportunity to pursue an independent research project without the pressure of having to secure funding and with mentoring from faculty at Harvard and MIT. It’s a “sexy way of transitioning to a tenure-track faculty position.” The rigorous interview process included meeting with a panel of Harvard Senior Fellows that included Nobel laureates Walter Gilbert (chemistry) and Amartya Sen (economics).
