University of Minnesota Twin Cities Student Receives SBB Research Group Foundation STEM Scholarship

The SBB Research Group Foundation named Adhvaith Sridhar a recipient of its STEM scholarship. The $2,500 award empowers students to create value for society by pursuing higher learning through interdisciplinary combinations of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Sridhar, a sophomore, studies Biochemistry and Psychology at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. In addition to his coursework, Sridhar has developed a genetically engineered plant with an enhanced immune system to combat crop losses and address global hunger. He has also designed an alternative mouse model to better reflect human infant immunity for drug and vaccine development.

“Adhvaith is a true visionary. His forward-thinking work is sure to change the field, and I’m so pleased we can support him in his journey," said Matt Aven, co-founder and board member of the SBB Research Group Foundation.
