Email: madhuri[at]niab[dot]org[dot]in

Dr. Madhuri Subbiah is a veterinarian by profession and received her Ph.D. in Molecular Virology from University of Maryland, College Park in Maryland, USA in 2010. During her doctoral studies in the laboratory of Dr. Siba. K. Samal, she characterized Avian Paramyxovirus serotype 2 (APMV-2) strains and also established reverse genetics system for APMV-2 prototype strain Yucaipa. Dr. Madhuri had previously worked as Deputy Manager, Platform Technologies, Anthem Biosciences Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore, where she and her team developed novel cell based high throughput enabled assays for drug screening. She joined the National Institute of Animal Biotechnology (NIAB) in November 2012 as Scientist C. Her research interests are to understand the molecular mechanisms of viral pathogenesis, to comprehend host-pathogen interactions and virus evasion of host immune response. Her major focus at NIAB will be to apply this knowledge for developing on-farm viral diagnostics and novel vaccines.
