My name is Nidhi Purohit, and I am the Chair of the Symposium Committee. I am a second-year in the College of Arts and Sciences, and I aspire to major in neuroscience while on the pre-med track. I have been a member of URN since my first year at UVA, hoping to support the students involved in research and to promote research to those who are interested. As part of the Symposium Committee, I aim to create an event where students from all disciplines feel encouraged to share their discoveries with the community here at the University. Currently, I am part of the Güler Lab in the Department of Biology where I study the role of dopamine in circadian rhythms. Outside of URN, I enjoy hiking, dancing, and just chilling with friends.
