I came to India to study in late 2005. Currently, I am pursuing a PH.D. in Biotechnology at National Chung Hsing University in partnership with Academia Sinica in Taiwan. The area research primarily focuses on cellular metabolism mediated by SARS-CoV-2-Spike (S) lycoprotein and how natural compounds like cordycepin from Cordyceps Sinensis. I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor, and I sincerely appreciate your continued support to students who need it most. Especially as someone who escaped from Tibet merely for receiving a proper education in exile, becoming one of the recipients of a scholarship from HH the Dalai Lama’s office is a blessed and proudest moment for me as well as my entire family back home in Tibet.
