Nischay  K  Rege

Entering Class: 2012
PhD Program: Biochemistry
Advisor: Michael Weiss, MD, PhD
Laboratory: Wood W520

Undergraduate Institution: Cornell University
Hometown: Marlboro, NJ.

Research Interests: My interests are mainly in the fields of biochemistry and biophysics. I hope to use quantitative approaches to address complex problems in molecular dynamics and biochemistry and apply them to disease systems.

About me: I enjoy reading, cooking, attending concerts, and spending time with my friends and family. I have been involved in radio broadcasting and production since my undergraduate years.

Comment about the MSTP program: Being part of CWRU's MST Program has been an excellent experience. It is intellectually rewarding being a member of a program with dedicated and talented classmates, peers, and alumni, and being exposed to many different approaches to science. I have also felt very comfortable among my peers, faculty, and administrators here at Case. The community at the university and in Cleveland has been very welcoming.
