Akshaj DarbarAbout

Biomedical Researcher & Biocomputational Scientist

My name is Akshaj Darbar. I am a Commander (ENTJ-A), and I'm very passionate about developing prophylactic (preventative) vaccines for cancer and slowing, or even stopping, neurological ageing.

I am currently a sophomore at Queen's University, studying Biomedical Computing, and a Research Assistant at the Rauh lab, where I am finding connections between epigenetic misregulation, clonal hematopoiesis and chronic kidney disease.

I am also the Chief of Science at Biotein, a longevity startup making personalized health information accessible with a saliva test that assess your health and offers you research-backed insights on how to improve it.

Finally, I am also independently exploring the development of prophylactic vaccines against cancer by targeting cancer stem cells.
