University Post-doctoral Fellow

Email Id: sabnac@gmail.com


Dr. Sabna is a University Post-doctoral fellow (UPDF) in Prof. G.S. Sailaja’s team at the Department of Polymer Science and Rubber Technology since June 2021. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in Molecular Biology and genomics from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2011 under the supervision of Prof. Zbynek Bozdech, where her research focused on elucidating the transcriptional response of human malaria parasites towards calcium signaling modulators. She recently joined Prof. Sailaja’s group as Post-doctoral fellow.
