Dr. MULLAPUDI Nandita is a Lecturer in the School of Biomedical Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong since 2020.  She received her Ph.D. (Genetics) from The University of Georgia, USA, and undertook post-doctoral training at the Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York. After her academic training, she spent several years in the genomics industry in India.  She is interested in genomics technology and the analysis and interpretation of genomics data in the context of basic genetics and disease biology. Her teaching and research interests focus on genetics, genomics and bioinformatics.
