Diana Cai, Fellow

Genetics and Genomics graduate student in the Cancer Program

Diana is an NSF Fellow in the Genetics and Genomics Program at Harvard University. Her research focuses on identifying novel mutations, pathogens, and mechanisms that can lead to cancer and other diseases. She has enjoyed working closely with her peers as well as teaching a diverse set of subjects at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Diana joined the Comm Lab because she particularly relishes the process of guiding her peers through scientific communication-related projects – be it for papers, grants, presentations, posters, or other forms of scientific communication – while learning about the exciting science being conducted in the process. Outside of academics, Diana enjoys the performing arts, reading, and exploring new places.
