Dr. Sowjanya E. Research Associate

I am a Research Associate at AAARNA Therapeutics Pvt. Ltd. I got trained in Chemistry during my Integrated M.Sc. at Pondicherry University. My research interest was complemented by DST-INSPIRE-SHE and IAS-SRF fellowship programmes. Consequently, I moved for a graduate programme at NCBS. It was followed by a collaborative research experience in biomaterials, molecular therapeutics and preclinical models at inStem and IIT-Kanpur. This led to the quest for transferring my skills to a research based company. Being the first mRNA therapeutics company in India built by a passionate team, I find AAARNA Therapeutics a great place to work.
