Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
Kajol joins EnMed from Atlanta where she received her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Her clinical experience includes working as a medical assistant at a primary care clinic, as well as volunteering in the telemetry unit at Grady Memorial Hospital. She also worked as a teaching assistant for general and organic chemistry and served as a mentor to biomedical engineering students pursuing medicine.
In addition, during her gap year, she worked at a startup that specialized in developing rehabilitation devices for stroke survivors with motor impairments. She led projects that centered around helping patients set long-term recovery goals and kept track of their improvements.
“My engineering background, coupled with my research and clinical experiences, have strengthened my drive to become a physician who spends time caring for patients but also remains on the forefront of improving and innovating medical technology,” she said.
Kajol’s Alzheimer’s disease research has been published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry and her research on traumatic brain injury was published in the Journal of Neurobiology of Disease. She plans to continue researching the complexity of neurodegenerative diseases at a cellular level and working on identifying clinical therapeutic strategies to target them.
Some of her hobbies outside of school include running, hiking, painting, cooking and baking. She also loves spending quality time with family and friends.
