Ashwin Seetharaman

Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Toronto

Dr. Ashwin Seetharaman holds a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics from the University of Toronto, Canada. As a graduate student, he elucidated the biological function of a novel gene called madd-4, in the tiny nematode C. elegans, which has now gained wide interest in the field of neurodevelopment. Presently, he is pursuing a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto unraveling genetic interaction networks underlying rare diseases using the CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology.
