Sanjay Mishra

Sanjay completed his Ph.D. at Vanderbilt University in the Chemical and Physical Biology. In the graduate school, he studied small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) for their role in the stress response and aging. Using protein engineering and CRISPR knockout strategies, he showed that sHSPs have conserved roles among vertebrates, and sHSPs have evolved possibly under the organellar and organismic proteostatic demands. When not in lab, Sanjay moonlights as a Data Scientist and a popular science writer.
