Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine, Yenepoya (Deemed to be University)
Yashwanth Subbannayya obtained his M.Sc. degree in Medical Biochemistry from Manipal University. He qualified the competitive CSIR-UGC National Eligibility Test and joined the Institute of Bioinformatics, Bangalore as a UGC Junior Research Fellow under the mentorship of Dr. Akhilesh Pandey. As part of his Ph.D. work, he studied the molecular mechanisms of gastric cancer in clinical specimens using quantitative proteomics. His expertise includes Systems Biology approaches to study diseases. Post-PhD, he joined the Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine, Yenepoya (Deemed to be University) as an Assistant Professor. Here, he helped establish high-resolution proteomics and metabolomics experimental and data analysis pipelines. He has also been involved in training several Ph.D. students and trainees at the center. He moved to the Centre of Molecular Inflammation Research (CEMIR), NTNU, Norway as a post-doctoral fellow in the Systems Inflammation Group under Dr. Richard Kumaran Kandasamy.
