Anandita Ananthakumar


I was born in India, and brought up in Dubai and went on to get my  Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from University at Buffalo, NY in 2016. I graduated with a Masters of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University in May 2018. I began working in the Truskey lab during my masters from the spring 2017. During my master's, I worked on identifying the effects of statin-induced myopathy on a human skeletal microphysiological system. For my PhD, my current research focus is on looking at inflammatory models of the skeletal muscle using our tissue engineered myobundles.
