Milton Hershey School Teacher Shares Expertise with Science Community

Milton Hershey School high school science teacher Dr. Raj Nagarajan’s expertise on plant biochemical genetics was recently featured in BioCoder, a quarterly scientific journal for biologists.

Dr. Raj authored the journal article titled, “Amazing, super-sweet natural proteins,” about the potential for sweet proteins found in plants to safely replace artificial sweeteners in food as a healthier option. It’s a topic he researched in his spare time for six months.

“My hope is that people around the world will learn more about these plants as a sweetener option and it will help others cultivate them in a larger scale,” he said.

Milton Hershey School high school science teacher Dr. Raj Nagarajan’s expertise on plant biochemical genetics was recently featured in BioCoder.

A plant biochemical geneticist with a doctorate from Kansas State University, Dr. Raj has been a teacher at MHS for the past 17 years. He regularly speaks with students about his background and experiences to help them gain a greater understanding about science careers they could pursue.

Dr. Raj currently teaches chemistry, anatomy, and physiology, and says he was drawn to the school because of its mission to help children from lower income families reach their full potential through a top-notch education and supportive family-like environment.
