Ashika Jayanthy

I am currently a fourth year PhD student in the Comparative Biomedical Sciences Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For my thesis work, I am studying the transcriptional regulation of microRNAs in melanoma. I got my bachelors degree in Biochemistry from the wonderful Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, IL after transferring there from the College of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Manipal University in Manipal, India.

I am from Mumbai, India and will always stand by the statement that it is the greatest city in the world.
