Vrinda Nair:
My inspiration

Can we find new powerful antibiotics using artificial intelligence?

We saw a pandemic and I don't think we have to witness another one. Antibiotic Resistance is a pressing issue and a threat to global health so it's the urgency of the time that we act fast. My inspiration lies in marrying physics with biology and that's what I am currently doing with my research project. The interdisciplinary aspects bring in great learning and challenges and making a transition from biotechnology to computational physics is again a fascinating step for me.
