Biosketch:

Mahua Mukhopadhyay, PH.D., joined the staff of the DBSV Branch in 2008 and is responsible for administering the program on early embryonic development. She received her doctorate degree in biology from McMaster University, Ontario, Canada, where she studied development of neuronal connectivity using the Drosophila visual system as model. During her postdoctoral studies at the Laboratory of Mammalian Genes and Development of the NICHD Intramural Program, Dr. Mukhopadhyay acquired extensive knowledge in mammalian embryonic development using the powerful tool of mouse genetics. In particular, her research experience in the area of early embryonic development is highly relevant to her position in the Extramural Division of the NICHD. Prior to joining her current position, she received the required training in the procedures & policies relating to grants administration. Dr. Mukhopadhyay coordinates the NIH’s initiative on biophysical and biomechanical aspects of embryonic development and the NICHD’s initiative on stem cell biology.
