Ph.D. Student

Ph.D. Project Title: Computational analysis of dysregulated transcriptional responses and 3D structural modelling of druggable fusion genes in Complex Diseases and COVID-19 infection.

Sunanda Biswas Mukherjee joined the MFM lab in May 2020 as a Ph.D. student. She did her MSc in Medical Biotechnology from West Bengal University of Health Science, India, and M.Tech in Bioinformatics from Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology, India. During her M.Tech thesis, she worked on cyanobacterial genomics at CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology. After joining at MFM lab, Sunanda worked on several COVID-19 projects. Her Ph.D. research will mainly focus on understanding the transcriptional dysregulation in complex diseases and COVID-19 infection and structural modelling of druggable fusion genes.
