Dr. Shruti Naik, Immunologist
On October 22, HHEF welcomed Dr. Shruti Naik as the kick-off speaker for our Girls' STEAM Series. Dr. Naik is an Indian-American immunologist and stem-cell biologist helping to advance our knowledge of the immune system. Her work supports the development of novel therapeutic strategies in a range of conditions, such as psoriasis, chronic wounds, and cancer. Named a L’Oreal Women in Science Fellow in 2016, she has produced a series of interviews with women in science to inspire the next generation of women in STEM. She will share her commitment to redefining our perception of what a scientist 'looks like' and what it means to be smart.
