Nicolas Chong is a PhD student in Zorlutuna lab. Before matriculating, Nic had worked in two research-oriented start ups for the generation of agricultural products that do not rely on animals. Originally from Jamaica, Nic had spent some time living in Florida, where he had completed his Bachelors in Biology and Biochemistry, and his masters in bioengineering. Both degrees were obtained through Florida Atlantic University (FAU). During Nic’s master’s he focused on scaffold generation for bone tissue engineering. Nic also has experience working as a teacher, a writing consultant, and a microbiologist. It is his dream to pursue science in a way that is both applicable as well as meaningful.
