Eastern Virginia Medical School Student Receives SBB Research Group Foundation STEM Scholarship

The SBB Research Group Foundation named Aravind Sreeram 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).

Aravind, a first-year medical student, studies at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Previously, he served as a pre-medical intern in neurosurgery at Northwestern University and authored a peer-reviewed article on using mitochondria-filled vesicles as an in vitro treatment for ischemic stroke. He also has a manuscript under review focusing on the Theory of Mind, a crucial sociocognitive skill for neurodiverse populations.

"We are happy to support Aravind in his pursuit of a medical degree and his work to make meaningful contributions to the field," said Matt Aven, co-founder and board member of the SBB Research Group Foundation.
