Samrat Thapa

2021 NeURO Trainee
Department of Biomedical Computation

Samrat is an incoming freshman to Stanford hoping to major in Biomedical Computation. His primary interests are in stem cells, specifically the mechanisms by which normal stem cells become cancerous. With a background studying blood stem cells and computations methods he hopes to approach medicine with perspectives of CS and molecular biology. Beyond research Samrat is fascinated with rockets, taking part in the Stanford Space Initiative Rocket team, DIY projects, and long distance running: he hopes to complete his first marathon in 2021.
