Anusuya Bannerjee(

I did my B.Sc in Biomedical Sciences from University of Delhi (2009) and M.Sc by Research in Biology from NCBS (2012). Post my M.Sc, I worked as a junior research fellow in Dr. Krishnan’s lab at NCBS (2013). I am currently pursuing my PhD at ESPCI (Paris) jointly in collaboration with her laboratory. For quite sometime, I have been interested in nucleic acids in different forms and contexts. In my PhD I wish to devise novel bioimaging tools using fluorescent nanoparticles and DNA bioconjugates.

As a person, I am lazy, hazy and crazy Smile
