Congratulations Nandan Gokhale! NIAID K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award Recipient
Nandan is a Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Fellow in Ram Savan’s lab. He earned his PhD from Duke University in 2019. He is broadly interested in how RNA regulates and is regulated by viral infection and antiviral innate immunity. He is currently investigating how RNA molecules interact with and affect the function of antiviral innate immune signaling platforms. His long term goal is to lead an independent laboratory studying the RNA biology underlying antiviral immune responses. The K99/R00 Award will fund up to two years of Nandan’s postdoctoral research, and two years for his future, independent lab.
