Faris Shaikh

Faris Shaikh is a second year undergraduate student at Washington University in St. Louis. He is a philosophy-neuroscience-psychology (PNP) major and bioinformatics minor. He has always been fascinated by the mind and its maintenance, which is why he joined the Bateman lab in the spring of 2020, working with the Tau team to develop in vitro models to study Tau kinetics. After college, he hopes to attend medical school and, one day, become a surgeon. Outside of the lab, Skaikh is also a part of an acapella group, is a residential advisor and a chemistry lab TA.
