Adult cardiac stem/progenitor cells in homeostasis and tissue injury
I graduated with a master’s degree in Biotechnology from VIT University, India and completed my thesis research at the Moores Cancer Centre, UC San Diego in 2010. I entered the CMB Program in 2010 and have chosen to do my doctoral work with Dr. Jeffrey Spees.
