Smruthi S. Rudraraju, Ph.D.

Technology Specialist

Overview

Smruthi applies her background in epigenetics and RNA biology to assist clients in the drafting and prosecution of patent applications.

Smruthi’s doctoral research focused on characterizing a dual DNA/RNA binding role for a transcription factor during the epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT), a process necessary for development and cancer metastasis. She specialized in a diverse range of molecular biology techniques, including confocal microscopy, 3D cell culture, and RNA immunoprecipitation. She gained experience in a variety of NGS applications and their subsequent bioinformatics analyses, and to that end, was awarded a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to facilitate her work.
