Dr. Karishma Kaushik, an Assistant Professor and DBT-Ramaligaswami Fellow in the Institute of Bioinformatics and Biotechnology of Savitribai Phule Pune University, was the most recent speaker in IBAB’s Research Seminar series. It was eye-opening to hear about Dr. Karishma’s career trajectory, especially because she is one amongst few MD-PhD scientists in India, and the hurdles that she faced to set up her independent lab upon returning to India from the US. Dr. Kaushik also discussed her exciting research on developing human-relevant wound healing models, which resulted in an engaging Q&A session.
