Bio

Always striving to improve the world, Saahith is an innovator looking to create change. Currently, he creating this change by building whole-cell models at the Karr Lab in the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. These computational models account for the function of every gene and molecule in a cell and have been described as “a grand challenge for the 21st century”. Saahith is constructing an automated data curation service to create these models and hopes to one day use these models to improve pharmaceutical selection and revolutionize personalized medicine. When Saahith is not trying to solve complex computer science and mathematical problems, he is playing golf or watching the NY Rangers bring the Stanley Cup to where it belongs.
