Dr Ashish Misra received his Masters degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, and his PhD in cell and molecular biology from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2011.
Dr Misra joins HRI from Yale Cardiovascular Research Center (YCVRC), Yale University where he was a Postdoctoral Associate. He is a recipient of the prestigious Yale Brown-Cox Postdoctoral Fellowship. His research focuses on blood vessel wall development and the pathogenesis of diverse cardiovascular diseases. His recent work demonstrated the molecular processes and signals that are required for blood vessel wall patterning and how aberrant molecular signalling leads to vascular abnormalities.
