Meet Viggy Vanchinathan

Being part of BioBuilder has helped solidify the direction I’m going to be going - after high school, after college. That one lab started it all.”

Viggy just completed his senior year at Westborough High School, in Westborough, a small town in central Massachusetts.

He was first exposed to synthetic biology through BioBuilder’s bacterial transformation lab, “What a Colorful World.” From there, he partnered with his high school biology teacher to bring the BioBuilderClub to Westborough High School.

Since then, Viggy has also served as a near-peer TA for BioBuilder’s summer programs, and this summer will work with BioBuilder as a junior instructor, as he prepares to start his undergrad program in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.
