Research: Elucidating the role of host molecular machinery in SV40 infection
Born in Pondicherry and brought-up in different parts of India, Madhu started his research career at the National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi, before moving to National University of Singapore to pursue his PhD. During his PhD, in 2010 Madhu visited the Tsai Lab as an International exchange scholar. After finishing his PhD, he joined the Tsai lab as Post-doctoral fellow in 2013. Away from research, Madhu spends his time behind the camera. He considers himself as a budding photographer (visit madnez) and an adventure traveller.
Research: Study on the role of ER proteins in SV40 ER to cytosol trafficking
After completing Ph.D. from University of Calcutta, Kolkata, Parikshit joined Tsai lab as post-doctoral fellow. Ann Arbor is his first experience living outside Kolkata (his home city). Pariskhit applies various virology and biochemical technique to study cellular trafficking of polyomavirus. Away from research, Parikshit loves to learn ancient history, human civilization and astrophysics.
Research: SV40 penetration across the ER membrane
After finishing his PhD program in Japan, Taka decided to go abroad to expose himself to a different scientific environment and joined the Tsai lab as a postdoctoral fellow in 2008. He studies how the polyomavirus family penetrates the ER membrane and causes infection using biochemical, cell biological and structural analyses. Taka loves lab works so he spends weekdays doing experiments in the lab, but he enjoys cooking and reading books at home on weekends.
