Dhaval Dixit

2013 Co-Director

Dhaval is a 4th year UCLA student majoring in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics. After graduation he plans to work in a laboratory studying the effects of HIV infection in different T cell subsets. Concurrently he will be applying for MD/PhD programs to aspire to become a researcher in the field of cancer immunology. Dhaval has been involved in InnoWorks since his 3rd year when he was the Chief Operations Officer. His interest in InnoWorks stemmed from a long developed affinity to working with kids. Since high school, he has volunteered as a mentor for programs involved in helping young kids learn and grow intellectually. Additionally, his little brother provides a source of inspiration for Dhaval's interest in working alongside children not only as an InnoWorks Co-Director this year but also as a physician in the future. Alongside Cindy, Dhaval hopes to establish a successful summer camp this year for children in schools surrounding UCLA.

InnoWorks is a Winner of the 2007 BRICK Awards
