How is it possible that a 2023 GCHS graduate is already becoming a professional success? If you are Nitin Nagarajan, you do so by attending one of the highest rated biomedical engineering schools in the country, Duke University. As a freshman, Nitin is participating in brain cancer research through his work in Duke’s prestigious Ostrom Lab. He also studies viral disease in Duke’s Tomaras Lab. In less than a year from his days on the Gadsden City tennis courts, Nitin is well on his way to his dream career of developing new biomedical technologies. He encourages current GCHS students to reach out to teachers, counselors, fellow students, alumni, and people in the community, because it is surprising how willing and happy most people are to help you.
