Dr Sreenivas Chavali BSc MSc


  • EMBO Long-Term Fellow, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Structural Studies Division

Sreenivas was awarded PhD in Biotechnology in 2009 by University of Pune, India for his research work on understanding the genetic determinants of human diseases, undertaken at CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology, India. Subsequently, he undertook postdoctoral studies investigating the role of gene expression regulation in human diseases at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

He came to Cambridge in November 2010 as Career Development Fellow to MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology and has subsequently become an EMBO long-Term fellow. He currently investigates the role of genetic variation on the gene expression regulation and different observable traits in diverse organisms from yeast to humans. He aims to extend the general principles derived by such comprehensive studies to understand the molecular determinants of human diseases.
