Atchuta Srinivas Duddu
I am working on mathematical modelling of gene regulatory networks, especially that of a mutually antagonistic triad motif (which we refer to as a toggle triad), in the scenario of a naive CD4+ T helper cell differentiating into three subtypes. Apart from mathematics and science, I like to sketch, illustrate (art essentially) and watch telugu movies.
Works with: Dr. Mohit Kumar Jolly, CSB lab
Project title: Multistability and epigenetic influence in a three node mutually repressive network
Joel P Joseph
I am a person with varied interests. I enjoy doing research, teaching, and writing. When not in the lab, you are most likely to find me at a tea stall.
Works with: Prof Dipankar Nandi & Prof Kaushik Chatterjee
Project title: Roles of Calcium stimulation and 3D microenvironment in T cell activation
Dr. Mahatabb Nundy
I am passionate about bridging the gap between clinical and basic research, particularly in neurology. My current work involves understanding motor control by studying patients having movement disorders.
Works with: Prof Aditya Murthy (CNS) and Prof A.T. Prabhakar, Christian Medical College, Vellore
Project title: The role of basal ganglia and dopamine in motor control
Rajesh Thangavel yadav
I am interested to solve the unmet clinical need to develop universal influenza vaccine capable of conferring protection against both seasonal and newly emerging pre-pandemic strains. I aspire to be a research-inspired entrepreneur.
Works with: Dr. Rachit Agarwal (BSSE) and Dr. Shashank Tripathi (CIDR, MCB)
Project title: Development of a chimeric universal influenza vaccine providing both humoral and cell mediated immunity.
Sameer Kumar Jagirdar
I’m a hyperactive human with a scientist’s mind. Professionally speaking, I am interested in learning about host-pathogen interactions in different contexts. Add in a biomaterial, and that’s what makes me run to lab everyday. I love designing and optimizing protocols for experiments and see them give me valuable information about the world around us.
Apart from science, I enjoy the outdoors very much. You will usually find me playing various sports or travelling during my free time.
Works with: Dr Siddharth Jhunjhunwala, Immunoengineering lab
Project title: Host-pathogen interactions at the catheter surface
Currently working in the area of immune-engineering. Particularly interested in engineering innate immune cell functions by using cargo-free, sterile particles in clinical settings.
Besides research, I love painting and cooking. I’m an animal lover and an active member of the animal welfare society on campus.
Works with: Dr. Siddharth Jhunjhunwala, Immune-Engineering lab
Project title: Understanding the changes in functional capacities of innate immune cells upon uptake of sterile particles
