 Dr. Akhilesh Pandey, MD, PhD

Professor, John’s Hopkins University School of Medicine, USA

 and Director, Institute of Bioinformatics, Bangalore.


Dr. Pandey obtained his MD (Pathology) from AFMC, Pune and PhD (Pathology) from the

 University of Michigan, USA. He received postdoctoral training both from the University of

 Michigan and MIT, USA (Pathology) and clinical residency training from Harvard medical

 School. He has varied research interests including analysis of phosphorylation and signal

 transduction cascades in human diseases, application of proteomic and genomic

 technologies to unravel molecular pathways in human health and disease. He collaborates

 with NIMHANS in various “omics” projects in neuroscience.

 Dr. Pandey visited the clinical neuroscience department on Dec 10, 2015 and

 interacted with the PhD students of the department. He shared his academic experiences

 during the doctoral and postdoctoral training and how they shaped him to be a highly

 successful physician scientist and also explained his research work. He advised the students

 about the difficulties/advantages regarding the exciting academic path chosen by them in

 the field of neuroscience and how they are uniquely qualified to take up a research career in

 neuroscience. The students found the informal interaction to be very helpful for their

 respective careers.
