Sanjana Sundararajan

Primary office:


As a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Molecular Biosciences, Sanjana's research in her lab focuses on studying the role of epigenetic regulators in cell division in human cels and the African clawed frog. Sanjana enjoys being involved in science communication and outreach activities through her lab and the department Graduate Student Organization. There are so many ways of pursuing science after a Ph.D., but there is a gap between the existing knowledge and what a graduate student wants from his/her career. She believes that this gap can be bridged by the SEARCH symposium. Bringing together people - different in terms of their science backgrounds, interests and career trajectories - under the same roof to talk to a diverse set of students who are trying to answer the "where or how to go from here" questions is going to be the goal of SEARCH this year. 


The SEARCH Symposium was partially funded by donations made to KU Student Endowment Board’s crowd-funding campaign, LaunchKU. If you would like to support our graduate student organizations and the 2020 SEARCH Symposium, please consider making a donation. Even the smallest donations make a difference. 


Thank you for supporting graduate students' efforts to promote science education and outreach, professional development events, and travel to professional meetings.
