Darshit Patel is working towards completing an Honors Specialization in Microbiology and Immunology at Western University. Originally from India, he moved to Canada at a young age of 8. As a young kid, he developed a strong interest in the field of science/medicine. This interest stayed with him throughout school and keeps him motivated to pursue opportunities that can enrich my knowledge and experience. Over the years, he has grown to be a quick, self-motivated learner, and always enthusiastic for taking on new challenges.
