Shilpa Pothapragada

PhD Institution
Tata Institute of Fundamental Research - Hyderabad

Shilpa’s PhD investigated the mechanisms through which physical forces act within epithelial tissues and their fundamental role in regulating cancer. As a Fellow, she will pivot from mechanobiology to bioengineering, focusing on women’s health. She plans to develop new tools to study and assess the pathophysiology of women’s reproductive health with the intent to improve therapeutics and diagnostics.
