Feb. 1, 2022


Meenu Priya, an Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and UArizona dual-degree alumnus who recently traveled to the U.S. to pursue a three-month internship in the lab of Yana Zavros, PhD, has gained admission to the College of Medicine – Tucson's Cellular and Molecular Medicine PhD program—making her the first dual-degree student from Amrita to do so. She hopes to join Dr. Zavros's lab again to continue her research in fall 2022.

“My long-term goal now is to target stem cells within the tumor microenvironment of different types of cancers,” Meenu said.

Congratulations, Meenu!
