Rishika Agarwal is a PhD student in the lab. She is working on developing organoids obtained from the skin epidermis.
Organoids are a collection of organ-specific cells that develop from stem cells or organ progenitors and are capable of recapitulating specific functions of the organ. She will use these organoids to study the development and physiology of skin and skin diseases.
She earned her MS in Biotechnology from Northwestern University, USA and was working at a Biotech company in Chicago before joining our lab in 2019.
