Meeta Yadav, MBBS, DCH

Postdoctoral Research Scholar

I completed my medical education in India. After moving to United States, I worked at Vanderbilt University and University of Connecticut Health Centre. I joined Mangalam’s lab to work on a project which involves understanding the role of microbiome in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I plan to explore, specifically the ability of gut bacteria and fungi to modulate host immune responses in MS. I will utilize my clinical background and research experience to explore the role of gut microbiome in pathogenesis and progression of MS and hope to contribute in developing novel therapeutic strategies for MS.
