SUNNY MUDHAR

Research Specialist

Sunny graduated from Rutgers University with a B.A. in Cell Biology and Neuroscience. His undergraduate research investigated the efficacy of ELP-recombinant growth factors for wound healing post-spinal cord injury. His current interests lie in understanding the structural and functional plasticity of the CNS at both the molecular and cellular levels. Outside of science, he enjoys both the sedentary and active lifestyles, reading books or gaming some days and demolishing the competition in basketball other days.

PEDRO ESTRADA

PhD student (rotation)

Pedro graduated from Tulane University with a BS in Neuroscience and BA in Philosophy. His previous research has been in the realm of telomeres, mostly looking at how telomere length differs across different tissues in healthy individuals and how telomere length changes as a result of adverse childhood experiences. While at Princeton, Pedro hopes to learn computational and molecular methods to better understand cellular diversity and development. Outside of the lab, Pedro enjoys cooking and reading. Pedro also enjoys both watching and playing rugby.
