    Dr. M. T. Jeena

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    BioDr. Jeena is a chemist whose research primarily focused on exploring chemical reactions inside the live cell, creating supramolecular self-assembly inside the cellular sub-compartments and organelle membrane perturbation to alter the cellular fate for applications such as cancer therapeutics, imaging, and in-depth study of cellular metabolism. At present (2021-) she is pursuing post-doctoral training under Dr. Jianghong Rao at Stanford School of Medicine. She did PhD at Ulsan National Institute of Science and technology (2013-2018, GPA 4.11/4.9, Thesis: Organelle Localization Induced Self-assembly of Amphiphilic Peptides: A Novel Strategy for Therapeutics) under prof. Ja-Hyoung Ryu. Jeena's PhD research introduced a new concept of mitochondria localized self-assembly of small molecules as a potential strategy to induce selective cancer cell death. She received MS in Applied Chemistry from Cochin University of Science and Technology, Kerala, India (2012, score ranked second in the university) and BS in Chemistry from Payyannur Collage, Kerala, India (2010, score ranked third in the university).
