Kamlesh Ganesh Pawar

Postdoctoral Researcher

Short Bio

Kamlesh joined Dr. Kirino’s lab as a postdoctoral research fellow in early 2017 after a short postdoc experience at University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland. He is trained in veterinary science and obtained his PhD at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. During his PhD, he investigated the regulation of (short and long) non-coding RNAs in host pathogen interaction. His long-term goal is to gain a fundamental understanding of the basic processes involved in the regulation of cellular activity via non-coding RNAs.
