    Nicholas Antonios Kalogriopoulos

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Genetics

    BioNick's broad research interests are in developing tools and technologies for research and therapeutic applications. Nick obtained a B.S. in Genetics and Molecular Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. During his undergraduate career, he trained with Dr. Paul Sondel, where he worked on preclinical testing of novel immunotherapeutic agents for the treatment of neuroblastoma. He obtained a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science with Dr. Pradipta Ghosh, elucidating the structural basis of non-canonical G protein activation by a novel protein family of Guanine Nucleotide Exchange Modulators (GEMs). As a Postdoctoral Researcher with Professor Alice Ting at Stanford University, his current research focuses on developing a new system for programmable and user-controlled cellular behaviors for immuno-oncology applications.

  • Saswati Karmakar

    Saswati Karmakar

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Genetics

    BioSaswati Karmakar obtained her undergraduate degree in Biotechnology at Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, New Delhi. She pursued her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, working on the molecular characterization of pancreatic cancer stem cells and their contribution to cancer initiation and progression. Then, she moved to Stanford University with the National Cancer Institute's F99/K00 award for a postdoctoral position in Monte Winslow's lab. Saswati's current research uses novel approaches such as molecular barcoding and high throughput sequencing to understand pancreatic cancer pathogenesis. Saswati's long-term research interest is to elucidate mechanisms of metastasis and ultimately find better therapeutic avenues for pancreatic cancer patients.
