Dr Nimisha Sharma completed her Ph.D from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and Masters from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. She was a visiting scientist at the Stowers Insitute for Medical Research, USA and Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK, where she gained experience in MudPIT technology, microarray technology and many other molecular techniques involved in working with the fission yeast. To further hone her skills as a researcher, she has done postdoctoral training in Children's National Medical Center, Washington D.C., USA, University of Chicago, USA, and National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi. The research interests of her laboratory include gene expression and regulation in eukaryotic cells as well as functional genomics. Wide array of approaches are employed to identify conserved and new components of different cellular machineries regulating biological processes in yeasts and other higher eukaryotic organisms. The work in the lab is supported by research grants from the Government of India. She is also involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students of Biotechnology.
