Clinical Research Assistant: Lochan Shah
MD Candidate (’21)
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine


Lochan Shah is a second year medical student at Johns Hopkins interested in the interaction of medicine, technology, and public health. She graduated from UC Berkeley, where she double-majored in Public Health and Molecular & Cellular Biology. During her time at Berkeley, she developed the smartphone app Picknic, which rewards users for buying fresh produce with discounted groceries. She also taught a course on social entrepreneurship at the University level, as well as classes on sexual education at under-resourced schools in the Bay Area, an activity that she continues to do in Baltimore. She’s excited to use these experiences in her new role as a medical student researcher and loves being an active member of the Corrie team! What gets her out of bed in the morning (besides a good pair of running shoes) is the people that make this world move, and she’s on a mission to help them move it.

Fun fact: She has lived in 4 different continents (North America, South America, Asia, and Europe)!
