Dr. Rajanahalli supports Stemedix as a stem cell biologist focusing on reprogramming, differentiation and 3D culture of pluripotent stem cells. He began his studies in 2003 at the Oxford College of Science, Bangalore, India, B.Sc. and continued in 2006 at the Bangalore University, Bangalore, India, M.Sc. He went on to complete his education 2011 University of Dayton, Ph.D.
Dr, Rajanahallis professional and community activities include Reprogramming somatic cells (skin, peripheral blood mononuclear cells) into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) using small molecules and episomal plasmids. Identifying novel differentiation methods of iPSCs (using small molecules) to generate neuronal stem cells, oligodendrocytes, cardiomyocytes, pancreatic beta cells, hematopoietic stem cells and T-cells and use these cells to model diseases (genetic, autoimmune, and metabolic) in a dish. Developing a 3D cell culture system (using advanced hydrogel systems for organoid formation from iPSCs and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and spheroid formation of tumors (drug testing). As well as, using oparticles (Ag, Au, Zn, Fe, and Pt) and identifying pathways responsible for DNA damage and apoptosis in stem cells.
