Dominick Zheng, born in Scarborough, Toronto and raised in Boston. I'm currently a senior at Harvard College and just completed my thesis research on diabetes and stem cells at the Melton Lab.
I fell in love with design:
at 13—selling mixtape cover art for aspiring 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.
