Supraja Varadarajan obtained her PhD from the University of California Los Angeles and completed her postdoctoral work at Stanford University in the lab of Andrew Huberman. She is primarily interested in the mechanisms that regulate axon growth in both health and disease. To support her postdoctoral work on axon regeneration in the visual system she was awarded a Knights Templar Eye Foundation Grant. Supraja’s future research goals aim to understand the molecular, and cellular mechanisms underlying activity-induced regeneration, with the goal of applying this approach to glaucoma.
