Sindhu is a PhD student at NJMS. During undergrad she found her passion for research in Dr. Federico Sesti’s lab studying heat shock proteins under the umbrella of Alzheimer’s Disease. She went on to do her Masters Thesis at the Weinberg ALS Center in Philadelphia, PA under the mentorship of Dr. Davide Trotti where she studied stress granule formation in the presence of GR rich dipeptide repeat proteins in C9orf72 ALS/FTD. Bringing together her love for behavioral and molecular neuroscience, she is looking at the links between obesity, pharmaceutical drugs, mental health and neuroinflammation.
