Anandi Krishnan, PhD, is a translational scientist with experiences in engineering, biosciences, molecular genetics and hematology. As a current NIH mentored career development awardee (NHGRI 1K08HG010061-01A1), and recent NIH-supported research re-entry (NCATS 3UL1TR001085-04S1), Anandi’s interests are in expanding our understanding of the multifaceted function of anucleate blood platelets  and parent megakaryocytes in human disease. Her current work, applying platelet transcriptome profiling and machine learning principles, aims to nominate novel clinically relevant strategies for personalized cancer and antiplatelet/antithrombotic therapy. Continued development of this research is likely to identify key mechanistic variables in platelet- and megakaryocyte-specific response to health and disease. 


We study the mechanisms by which blood platelets and megakaryocytes respond to disease.
