DHANENDRA TOMAR, PhD
Dhanendra received his Ph.D. in Cell Biology from the University of Pune in India. His thesis studies focused on the role of TRIM family of ubiquitin E3 ligases in autophagy and NF-kB signaling. He also worked at the University of Bordeaux in France as a visiting scholar where he studied the role of ubiquitination in mitochondrial biology. His initial postdoctoral research was focused on the molecular mechanism of mitochondrial calcium exchange. Currently, he is examining the molecular determinants of mitochondrial dynamics and resultant physiology. Besides reading the scientific literature, DT enjoys reading history books, watching documentaries, traveling, cycling, and kayaking.
