Shruthi Vijay Kumar
Zebrafish Developmental Biology
Shruthi is an eager learner with experience in molecular biology, biochemistry and gene editing techniques including CRISPR. In our aim to develop the cell atlas in Biohub, Shruthi helps with the biological aspect of the project. Her current focus lies on lineage tracing of a population of progenitor cells known as neuro-mesodermal progenitors.
Shruthi's previous experience includes working with tumor samples from human patients and mouse cell lines, and making transgenic lines in Zebrafish with the aim of understanding disease pathology of hearing loss in humans.
Shruthi's long term goal is to extend and integrate her expertise and experience from developmental biology to translational biology.
