Anandika Dhaliwal, PhD

Global Regulatory Team Lead, Sanofi-Genzyme, Bridgewater, New Jersey

Anandika received her PhD from UCLA in 2012 in Biomedical Engineering. Her research focused on understanding the role of cellular microenvironment and underlying intracellular pathways on enhancing gene delivery to stems cells in 2-D and 3-D. She misses everyone from lab but gives a special shout out to all the awesome undergrads that she had the opportunity to work with. And while her lab memories of fun times at conferences reminds us – attend conferences!! – her true advice to current students is: “Always have an open perspective to try innovative approaches and have the willingness to explore different opportunities and collaborations that come your way.”
