Himanshu Goswami

Skopelja-Gardner lab

Himanshu was born and brought up in Assam, a picturesque state in northeastern India. His early scientific curiosity as a kid gradually transformed into an interest in understanding why and how biological molecular machines go haywire during diseases. He received his BS degree in Biotechnology from Manipal Academy of Higher Education in 2018 and his MS degree in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology from Tezpur University, India in 2020. The areas of microbiology, immunology, and cell biology appeal to him. In his undergrad, he studied the interaction of bacterial virulence factors with human neutrophils in the context of wound healing and diabetes. Moreover, he studied the expression of the non-canonical estrogen receptor repertoire in ER-negative breast cancer while working as a research assistant at the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati. In addition to academic research, he has worked in a corporate role in scientific publishing for two years where he assisted researchers, doctors, and primarily non-English-speaking researchers get published. He is thrilled to be a part of the MCB community at Dartmouth and hopes to relish the best of what the Upper Valley has to offer in terms of outdoor activities. He loves biking, exploring quaint towns, and trying new cuisines.
