Anj has worked in Dr. Michael Dailey’s neurobiology lab since freshman year. He and the other members of his lab study glial cells (the “other” cells of the brain), in particular microglia and their role in brain injury and recovery. Currently Anj is working on a project using microparticles in an attempt to reduce the harmful inflammatory effects of microglia.
In addition to his neurobiology and microbiology majors, Anj is working on a minor in German and a certificate in clinical and translational sciences. Outside of school he is very involved with music, playing viola in the symphony orchestra and a quartet, as well as playing guitar for cancer patients at the hospital.
