Hopkins Engineering alum Anson Zhou ’23, will join the 7th cohort of Knight-Hennessy Scholars at Stanford University.

The Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program brings together exceptional graduate students from across all seven schools at Stanford to participate in multidisciplinary dialogue and leadership training. Scholars receive a fellowship for up to three years of tuition, a stipend for living and academic expenses, and a travel stipend for one annual trip to and from Stanford.

The Medford, New York, native is pursuing an MD at Stanford School of Medicine and an MBA at Stanford Graduate School of Business. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from the Whiting School in 2023. Anson aspires to bridge engineering, business, and medicine to catalyze translation of healthcare and life science innovations. At Johns Hopkins, he conducted research in biomaterials for regenerative medicine at the Institute for NanoBioTechnology. This led to him co-founding Innerva, where he developed devices to treat peripheral nerve injuries. He interned at Health Advances and Schrödinger, building strategies for therapeutics adoption and computational drug discovery. Anson also worked as a fellow at Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures and NeuroTech Harbor to support funding efforts across the life sciences. Since graduating, he has worked as an associate consultant at Bain & Company in its private equity practice. He received a Lemelson-MIT Student Prize.
