Dr. Girish K Radhakrishnan received his PhD in Biotechnology from School of Biotechnology, Madurai Kamaraj University in 2006. He did his postdoctoral research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the areas of microbiology and immunology. He joined the National Institute of Animal Biotechnology in December 2012 as Scientist D. His research interests include understanding the virulence mechanisms of the infectious intracellular bacterial pathogen, Brucella and development of novel vaccines and diagnostic tools for animal and human brucellosis.
