What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research

As a fourth-year undergraduate student at IISER Tirupati, I am pursuing a dual degree with majors in Biology and Mining in Chemistry. My passion lies in the field of stem cells and therapeutics, where I aspire to make significant contributions. Currently, my research focuses on gastruloids, exploring various body symmetries and understanding cell migration patterns. I am driven to deepen my understanding of these processes to ultimately contribute to advancements in regenerative medicine and therapeutic interventions.

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

The Fellows Program presents an invaluable opportunity for me to gain insight into the workings of the pre-print cycle, allowing me to understand how research is disseminated and reviewed prior to formal publication. Moreover, the program offers a unique chance to connect with like-minded individuals who share my passion for research and innovation. These connections not only foster collaboration but also provide a supportive network for sharing ideas, experiences, and expertise, ultimately enriching my academic and professional journey in the field of stem cells and therapeutics.

What are you excited about in science communication?

I’m a firm believer in the mantra ‘Science isn’t finished until it’s communicated.’ Strong foundations in any pursuit are essential, but without effective communication to those for whom science is intended, it loses its purpose. Science communication encompasses a multitude of parameters aimed at effectively and impactfully conveying scientific knowledge to benefit society.

Ask me about….

When not in the lab, I’m your go-to for movie tips or singing along; I love talking about everything and anything over a cup of coffee and a plate of momos 🙂
