Vignesh Sadras, ICM Undergraduate Student, accepted to The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
Vignesh Sadras, an fourth year undergraduate in the lab of Raimond Winslow, Director of the Institute for Computational Medicine, has been accepted to The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s MD program for the fall of 2018. Sadras, whose research interests include health disparities and integrative medicine, aspires to care for medically underserved patients and help them cultivate self-sufficiency.
“It is my core conviction that all people are fundamentally equal, and have the same capacity to fulfill themselves and positively contribute to our society. Thus, I am inspired by the JHU School of Medicine’s pioneering efforts to harmonize education, research, and patient care, with the ultimate aim of serving people from all walks of life,” explains Sadras.
Sadras notes that his mentors, Raimond Winslow, The Raj and Neera Singh Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and Joseph Greenstein, associate research scientist in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and his lab mates have inspired him to study medicine with the same integrative approach that he experienced in Winslow’s ICM lab.
Sadras is grateful for the support of his family, mentors, faculty, administrative staff, and students at the ICM.
