Scenes from a Writer’s Life

Darshak Bhatt

A PhD candidate enrolled at the University of Groningen and the University of Sao Paulo, designing safe bio-therapeutics for cancer treatment. Often found hunting mushrooms around the city, taking pictures, and doing watercolors.

I like to do fun Science and to discover interesting stories. I work to make safe cancer virotherapy and study how to combat therapeutic resistance in order to improve efficacy. I like working with iGEM teams and learn how synthetic biology can provide alternatives to antibiotics, engineer skin microbiota, and design therapeutic nanobodies. I am also involved in unraveling the landscape of (synthetic) biology through a podcast and in promoting biotechnology research in the Netherlands through SynBioNL.

New friends and collaborators, please reach out on social media or write to me!
