Congratulations to David, our Class of 2019 awardee for the “100 by 100” Cambridge Business Community STEAM Scholarship for Mathematics! David is enrolled at Brown University, where he’ll be majoring in computational biology: “It was mainly my time in a summer internship at Day Zero Diagnostics, a startup company whose goal is to use genome sequencing and machine learning technology to modernize infectious disease diagnosis and treatment, that cemented my future direction to pursue computational biology — a field where I can actively contribute to saving lives while still pursuing my lifelong passion for computer science. I want to be able to eventually help lead the research and development of this type of technology.”
