Congratulations on this great opportunity.
I completed my Bachelors in Pharmacy from Vaagdevi College of Pharmacy in 2009, India and Masters in Pharmaceutical Science from Northeastern University, Boston in 2011. I joined the CMB Program with a specific interest in Pharmacology in the fall 2012. I chose the CMB program at UVM for its interdisciplinary program in Biomedical Sciences which ranges form Microbiology to Cancer biology and provides a unique opportunity for collaborative projects and training. My research interests include signal transduction, genetics and proteomics. Outside of the lab, I love cooking and cycling. Sharath Chandra Madasu
