Hi! My name is Nathaniel and I’m a junior at Harvard studying molecular biology.
I’ll be writing a series of essays about my encounters with cutting-edge science, biomedical entrepreneurship and venture capital.
My work is guided by the belief that advances in the life sciences will fundamentally alter our world and have the unique potential to transform our conception of what it means to be human.
I study the science, business, and bioethics of emergent technologies because I want to be a part of that journey — and help to ensure we take the right path.
I’m also working on a thesis in the David Sinclair Lab at Harvard Medical School (interventions to slow aging) and growing life sciences deal flow as a partner at First Round Capital’s university venture group Dorm Room Fund.
Keep an eye out for my future essays and feel free to get in touch.
