Ava Karanjia was 8 years old when she was diagnosed with an unknown illness and spent countless hours in doctors’ offices being handed from one specialist to another.
Though the disease directly affected her, Karanjia also saw the indirect effect it had on her family. As she grew older, she came to understand how illness can affect entire communities.
Karanjia’s experience inspired her to pursue a career where she could help communities overcome health challenges by tackling them at the molecular level.
