Eric Sun, from Pueblo, Colorado, is pursuing a PhD in biomedical informatics at Stanford School of Medicine. He graduated from Harvard University with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and physics, and a master’s degree in applied mathematics. Eric aspires to study the complex biology of aging and design treatments and technologies for extending the healthy human lifespan. At Harvard, he worked in the applied math lab, where he derived protocols for optimally repairing aging systems, simulated aging in mechanical networks, and modeled fruit growth. He worked in the Snyder Lab at Stanford, where he characterized changes in human gene expression during aging, and at the National Institute on Aging, where he developed machine learning models for predicting biological age from clinical traits. Eric is an Amgen Scholar, SENS Summer Scholar, and John Harvard Scholar, and recipient of the PD Soros Fellowship for New Americans.
