Tejas Shah, B.S. Research collaborator I moved to the United States at the age of 8 from Mumbai, India. I grew up in San Diego and graduated from Scripps Ranch HS (Go Falcons!). I attended UC Irvine where I grew an interest in medicine through my clinical experiences doing research at the UC Irvine free clinic, as well as the MICU where we evaluated the efficiency of the ultrasound machine as an alternative to assist in various medical procedures. I graduated in 2014 with a B.S. degree in Human Biology, with encouraging words from President Obama as our keynote speaker. Afterwards, I underwent my second ACL surgery which was tough but my experience through the ordeal furthered my interest in medicine and more specifically sports medicine which is one of the main reasons I am volunteering in Dr. Hargens’ lab over the summer. In early 2015, I worked in Dr. Goldberg’s lab where I assisted post-doctoral scholar Dr. Galvao in her nerve regeneration studies, specifically quantifying retinal ganglion cells after they have gone through multiple combinations of experimental treatments. I also tutored various high school and college students in the basic sciences via the Varsity Tutors program. During this time, I applied to medical school and am fortunate to be accepted into Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, where I have just completed my second year. In the summer before I started medical school, I took a memorable trip to Thailand, where I visited Bangkok, Phuket, and Chiang Mai. The ability to immerse myself in such a rich culture full of rich history and tradition was an amazing experience, and something I encourage many others to do. I am interested in going into Orthopedics and therefore made the decision to join Dr. Hargens’ lab over the summer of 2017. My time here has broadened my knowledge in the medical sciences and will certainly be something I can hold onto as I advance further in my career as a medical doctor.
