Area of Work: Ischemic Stroke, Human Immunogenetics
About: I graduated from the Bharathiar University with first class honors and subsequently received my Ph.D. in Biotechnology from Bharathidasan University, India, where I studied the genetics of ischemic stroke in Dr. Balakrishnan’s lab. I am a molecular geneticist with research expertise in medical genetics and genomics of human complex diseases, specifically cerebrovascular diseases. My previous research experience focused on analyzing candidate genes associated with ischemic stroke, as well as the expression of heat shock protein in humans under different conditions. I joined Dr. Reddy’s lab in November of last year, and my current research will be focusing on the link between stroke and vascular dementia using different animal and cellular models.
