Swathi obtained her PhD from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, focusing on investigating the impact of tumor heterogeneity on oncogenesis. Following that, she pursued her postdoctoral research at Stanford University, where she examined tumor-immune interactions using high-throughput screens. Her research revolves around comprehending disease biology and devising innovative approaches to targeted therapy, utilising molecular biology and functional genomic tools. Currently, at Retro, Swathi is spearheading the construction of a high-content screening platform aimed at facilitating the development of groundbreaking therapies that effectively extend human lifespan. Apart from work, Swathi takes pleasure in travelling, nature photography, creating micropen art, and nurturing plants.
