Ali Khaki ’07 got an unexpected insight into his career path two years ago when he became a research assistant in Joe Chihade’s biochemistry lab. The experience turned Khaki’s love of science into an appreciation of scientific discovery.
“The science done in the laboratory is very different from the science done in the classroom,” says Khaki. “I’m not just doing experiments he tells me to do. It’s more of a give and take between two scientists.”
