Ved Topkar

MD/PhD student, technology enthusiast


I'm Ved Topkar, a second year MD/PhD student at Stanford Medical School. I graduated from Harvard College with a major in Chemical and Physical Biology and a minor in Computer Science. I am interested in RNA biology, entrepreneurship, and computer science education.

On the side, I am involved in Beacon Genomics, a genome editing specificity and safety company spun out of the Joung Lab.

Over the years, I have dabbled in a number research projects. A summary of my current and past research experiences can be found here, and information about the published papers that I have coauthored can be found here.

I previously co-founded and co-exited the education technology company Keystone Learning Systems. A writeup of our story from founding to acquisition can be found here.
