Dr Indumathi Mariappan, PhD
Designation: Research Scientist, Sudhakar & Sreekanth Ravi Stem Cell Biology Laboratory
Location: Kallam Anji Reddy Campus, Hyderabad
Dr Indumathi Mariappan completed her doctoral training in the area of Cell Biology and Molecular Biology at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Hyderabad in the year 2005. She also underwent a three year post-doctoral training at CCMB before joining the Stem Cell Biology Laboratory at LVPEI in 2008. Dr Mariappan’s lab is involved in basic and translational research towards addressing the problems of retinal and corneal diseases using different sources of adult and pluripotent stem cells. Her group is currently exploring the basic biology of limbal stem cells and the applications of embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) in disease modeling and regenerative medicine.
