Ragini Phansalkar

Ragini is 9th year MD/PhD student. She is from Stamford, CT and studied biology and computer science at the University of Connecticut before coming to Stanford for graduate school. She completed her PhD in Genetics in the lab of Dr. Kristy Red-Horse combining single-cell RNA sequencing and lineage tracing to reveal a transcriptional convergence of cell lineages that contribute to coronary vessels. This year she is working as a post-sophomore fellow in pathology and doing research with Dr. Albert Wu applying her background in transcriptomics to study eye development. Ragini is excited about mentoring students from the high school through graduate school level and has previously served as a college applications coach with the Boys and Girls Club as well as a TA for the Stanford SIMR program. In her free time Ragini enjoys dance and yoga, trying out new recipes and tending to her community garden plot.
