Manjari Trivedi, Ph.D.
Manjari studied Biotechnology at VIT University, Vellore in India before doing a research-based Master's in Biomedical Sciences at University of Glasgow in 2016. Her Master’s focused on atherosclerosis and spinal cord injury, projects that inspired her to do a PhD. Supported by a President's PhD scholarship from Imperial College London, she joined Dr Wei Cui's lab to study molecular mechanisms that regulate TGF-β signaling in human embryonic stem cells. Her work showed an important role of Smad2 linker region phosphorylation in modulating the intensity and duration of TGF-β signaling, which has important implication for early embryonic development. Manjari joined the Goessling lab in May 2022 and is interested in exploring the role of leukocytes in liver regeneration and fibrosis. Outside the lab, she enjoys cycling, hiking, yoga, and learning about world geopolitics.
