Omair Khan

Omair Khan (BR '19) is a Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology major from the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Omair is pursuing a career in healthcare and is interested in public and global health alongside scientific and clinical medicine. During his time as an undergraduate, Omair is eager to utilize the skills and experiences he has gained both in the classroom and the laboratory setting in the public and private sectors of medicine. ​ More recently, Omair gained valuable experience into private scientific enterprise by working with a biotech start-up in the Bay Area--introducing him to the idea of medical entrepreneurship. Looking to the future, he hopes to gain similarly valuable insights in other realms of healthcare such as policy and economics. At Yale, Omair serves on the boards of the Muslim Students Association (MSA), Students Organize for Syria (SOS), and the Yale Rotary Club. He also conducts biomedical research at the Medical School with Dr. Richard Flavell, investigating host-microbial immune interactions.
