Kinjaal Nagindas

Representative - South Africa, Pretoria

Microbiology, Food Sciences

Kinjaal is a university student pursuing her BSc in Microbiology with sub-discipline in Applied Microbiology, the elective modules she had decided to take were in Food Sciences. She believes that food safety within industries should be taken with much importance, and we can help protect and perhaps improve nutrition for consumers with the help of molecular biology and biotechnology. Kinjaal is enthusiastic about the field of microbiology and biotechnology as she sees much potential in research that could perhaps end many global problems we are facing.

To her, SynthEthics is a platform which will allow for the much-needed conversations as to how we can best protect the public and help bring about greater awareness about the pros and cons that come with biological innovation.
