Home Department: undeclared
Supported by: Bio-X
Mentor: Philip A. Beachy, Professor of Biochemistry and Developmental Biology

Max Silverstein is a rising sophomore planning to major in either biology or human biology. This summer, he will be doing research on stem cell biology in Dr. Philip Beachy’s lab, specifically examining the role of the Hedgehog signaling protein. In general, Max is interested in cellular biology and physiology with plans to eventually study medicine. Outside the lab Max likes to snowboard and rides for the Stanford road cycling team.
