I obtained my basic educational training in Anthropology and Biological Anthropology at Andhra University (India) and University of Kansas. Specifically, my postdoctoral training that I had received here at Texas Biomed helped me to gain knowledge and focus on the area of research related with identification and characterization of genes contributing to normal variation in the complex traits related to health and disease.
