Biography

Ramya graduated with a MS in Biomedical Engineering from University of Florida in 2011. She went on to complete her PhD in Biomedical Sciences from the same school by focusing on Autoimmunity for her dissertation. In 2017, she joined Fred Hutch as a Postdoctoral Fellow and worked on immunophenotyping the tumor microenvironment in a 3D tumor model system in the Gujral lab. After 2 years of training, Ramya joined the Gerner lab at University of Washington as a Senior Fellow in September 2019. Her current research is centered on exploring the crosstalk between host and immune cells in the tumor microenvironment using advanced microscopy and imaging techniques.
