Armaan Nallicheri joined Close Concerns in 2021 after graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Computer Science. As an undergraduate, Armaan researched whether circulating tumor DNA in urine could act as a noninvasive liquid biomarker for bladder cancer in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Wash U School of Medicine. Armaan’s broad interests in medicine, business, and technology led him to intern at Aduro Biotech/Chinhook Therapeutics, where he joined the biomarker team to develop novel ELISA assays. He is passionate about making medicines affordable for those who need them the most, and thus was drawn to Close Concerns to learn more about and to contribute to work in diabetes, obesity, and public health. In his free time, Armaan loves to cook, do Zumba, cultivate Spotify playlists, and complete the NYT daily crossword.
