Radhika Puttagunta

Post-doctoral researcher at the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research, University of Tübingen

Radhika Puttagunta is a senior post-doctoral scientist in the Neuroregeneration Lab at the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research. She previously worked on stimulating neurite outgrowth in primary central nervous system neurons with the treatment of retinoic acid which blocked the expression of an inhibitory myelin protein (Lingo-1, part of the Nogo-R complex that inhibits axonal regeneration) as well as studying the role that mitochondrial heat shock protein 70 plays in stress resistance and aging.
