Dr. Sumit Mukherjee

Postdoctoral researcher

Dr. Sumit Mukherjee completed his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics in 2019 from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Kolkata. He won the prestigious PBC fellowship for outstanding postdoctoral researcher award from the Council for Higher Education Israel and joined the MFM Lab in November 2019.
During his postdoctoral research, Sumit lead several projects on chimeric RNAs and COVID-19. He published several papers during his postdoctoral research at the MFM lab. His published articles on COVID-19 were covered by several media and newspapers such as The Jerusalem Post, Times of Israel, Israel National News, Times of India, EurekAlert, etc.
