Anuradhika Puri


Anuradhika is a postdoctoral fellow in the lab. She is originally from Himachal Pradesh, India. She graduated with a degree in Biotechnology from Panjab University, Chandigarh. She then completed her PhD at the Institute of Microbial Technology (IMTECH) in Chandigarh. There she joined Dr. Deepak Sharma’s lab in 2014 and studied yeast prions. She used various molecular genetics, biochemical, and biophysical techniques to complete her objectives. In 2022, Anuradhika was awarded the ALS Association’s Milton Safenowitz Postdoctoral Fellowship! When she is not in the lab, she enjoys listening to music, cooking Indian food, and watching movies.
