Dominick Zheng, born in Scarborough, Toronto and raised in Boston.
I graduated from Harvard College '16 and completed my honors thesis on diabetes, stem cells, and their global health implications at the Melton Lab
. I currently live in San Francisco and work at Benchling.
I fell in love with design:
at 13—selling mixtape cover art for rappers on hip hop forums—posing as a 20-year-old with a high pitched voice.
I fell in love with science:
at 12—when I used eggshells to model teeth in my first science fair project; I've been working in molecular bio labs ever since.
I hope to end up:
at the intersection of art and science, making strides in healthcare and medicine.
