About

Arjun was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. He graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Microbiology. At Cal Poly, Arjun worked in the lab of Dr. Michael Black where he studied Celiac Disease—cloning a novel strain of prophylactic Lactobacillus bacteria to cleave immunogenic gliadin peptides in the small intestine. Prior to attending medical school at Georgetown University, Arjun spent a year in the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford in the labs of Dr. Raphael Guzman and Gary Steinberg studying intravascular neural stem cell therapy for stroke—specifically elucidating the difference between intra-arterial and intravenous injection. Outside of medicine, Arjun enjoys traveling, photography, golf and playing the guitar and piano.
