About Harshini Malapati

Hi! My name is Harshini. I am currently a junior, majoring in Biology and minoring in Public Health. On campus, I am involved with the W&M Global Innovation Challenge, and I volunteer at the W&M Greenhouse. I also research on thyroid hormone mutations that might be associated with the development of liver cancer.

I know that as a prospective student, I wanted to learn as much about a typical W&M student's life as I could. So, I can't wait to share my experiences with you through my blog posts.
