Dr. Srinivas Pentyala, Director, Translational Research, Stony Brook University.
In an interactive session with students, Dr. Pentyala discussed innovative approaches to pursuing a career in science. The session brought out one key observation – possibilities are as diverse and boundless as the discipline itself – a world without limits.
Srinivas Pentyala is Director of Translational Research in the Department of Anaesthesiology, at the Renaissance School of Medicine, Stony Brook University, New York. His research interests include cell signalling mechanisms.
He pointed out how each project in the medical sciences depends on professionals from diverse disciplines, often from opposite ends of the spectrum, which in turn represents a plethora of career opportunities.
Using the example of new drug discovery Dr. Pentyala demonstrated how each of the sciences contribute, ”Chemistry in process of extraction, molecular biology for testing and Physics for moulding.”
