Before McKinsey, Agrawal was a research fellow at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and at the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in molecular biophysics and biochemistry and a master’s degree in molecular biophysics from Yale University, and a medical doctorate degree from Yale University School of Medicine, Harris said.
