Vijayendran Chandran, Ph.D.

A Short Biography:

Dr. Chandran is working as Assistant Researcher in Dr. Daniel Geschwind's Lab, Department of Neurology at UCLA. His research focuses on two key topics: (1) Peripheral and central nervous system recovery after injury (regeneration), and (2) Friedreich's ataxia (degeneration). During his graduate studies in Bielefeld University, Germany, Dr. Chandran had many experiences in various omics experimental procedures and computational systems biology approaches. During his postdoctoral training he has implemented these methods and gained additional experience in animal and bioinformatics research in the field of neurogenetics.
