Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Ophthalmology
BioOriginally from India, Ankush completed his Bachelors in Pharmacy from Guru Nanak Dev University in 2009. He completed his Masters in 2011 from McGill University, Montreal, Canada where he worked on investigating the role of intermediates of carbohydrate metabolism in regulating retinal angiogenesis. Furthermore, he obtained his PhD from Faculty of Medicine, McGill University in 2016 under the mentorship of Dr. Sylvain Chemtob.
His graduate research focus revolved around investigating the role of intermediates of carbohydrate metabolism and orphan GPCRs in modulation of the following:
1) Angiogenesis/Retinal vascular development in Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)
2) Modulation of inflammation during Preterm Labor
3) Regulation of Brain angiogenesis and rescue after post hypoxic-ischemic Brain injury
He received a couple of scholarships during his stint at McGill including CIHR-DDTP, CIHR-SBTP, FRSQ-VHRN scholarship and Graduate Provost Scholarship. He worked as a Biomarkers Scientist at Charles Rivers Laboratories, one of the leading CRO's for a year after his PhD. Ankush recently joined Department of Ophthalmology, Stanford University as a Post Doctoral Researcher under the guidance of Dr. Jeffery Goldberg.
