Dr. Mohanraj Sadasivam, Ph.D. is currently a post-doctoral research fellow with the Department of Pathology at Johns Hopkins University. He received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Bharathidasan University in Tiruchirappalli, India where he studied cytokine-mediated Histone H3 modification in Leydig cells and its implication in the regulation of testicular steroidogenesis. His current research focuses on a neglected T cell subset (Double negative T cells) and its role in kidney injury. His studies include trying to understand their origin and physiological functions in the kidney, which thus far suggest a critical role in protecting the kidneys from Ischemia Reperfusion Injury (IRI).
