ABOUT:

Radhika grew up in Delhi, India where she obtained her Undergraduate and Master’s degree in Chemistry and came to the United States for her doctoral studies at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. There she was introduced to the fascinating world of motor proteins and mechanochemistry, single molecule techniques and microscopy in the lab of Dr. Jeff Gelles where she obtained her Ph.D in Biochemistry. She remains fascinated by nanoscale biological machines and loves to stare at microcopy images as much as she did as a graduate student.

 

Missing the hustle and bustle of a city and wanting to expand her knowledge of cell biology, she then moved to Rockefeller University in New York, NY for her postdoctoral work in the lab of Dr. Tarun Kapoor, where she was introduced to one of the most exquisite structures in our cell, the mitotic spindle. As a postdoctoral fellow, she reconstituted minimal modules of the spindle apparatus to decipher the fundamental rules that govern the size and geometry of this micron-sized structure.

 

She is currently an assistant professor at the Dept. of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and the Dept. of Molecular Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital. Radhika is a Pew Biomedical Research Scholar, an American Cancer Society Ellison Foundation Research Scholar, and a recipient of the Smith Family Award and the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award.

 

Radhika is participating in a fundraising effort by the American Cancer Society to enable, support and sustain innovative and exciting women-led research in the field of cancer biology. Learn more about this fundraising work or donate to the American Cancer Society ResearcHERS Campaign:
