Ram Venigalla

Ram obtained his Ph.D in Immunology from University of Heidelberg, Germany by studying the role of Regulatory T cells in autoimmunity under the supervision of Professor HM Lorenz. Later he joined Dr.Simon Arthur’s lab at MRC PPU, Dundee, UK as a postdoctoral researcher in summer 2009 to understand the role of AGC kinases in haematopoiesis and MAPK kinases in adaptive immunity. Since 2012 in Martin’s lab, Ram is researching the role of PI3 kinase in T and B cell interaction for successful antibody production.
