Dr Ruma Raha-Chowdhury
Scientific Advisor for Molecular Neuroscience
Dr Ruma Raha-Chowdhury is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
I have a passion for Iron. My main interest is investigate role of iron proteins in brain iron homeostasis, neuronal inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases. Recently I found a family of inhibitory Guidance molecules regulate by iron and have an important role in cellular differentiation and in Stem cells. I have been continuing some of long-term project on Major Histocompatibility complex genes function in iron overload, inflammation and neurodegeneration.
My main role is to teach Molecular biology techniques to Neuroscience PhD students and help and advice them to improve their skill.
