Deepali S. Mitra - Research Associate

Deepali Mitra joined Nanoprobes in Summer 2005 as a Research Associate to develop new technologies for biomedical imaging. She holds a B.Sc. in Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology, and a M.Sc. in Biochemistry from the University of Pune, India. Before joining Nanoprobes, her experience included work as a Research Support Specialist in the Departments of Medicine and Pharmacology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and a Biology Associate in the Biology Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, New York. She has also worked as a Research Associate at the Mount Albert Research Centre, Auckland, New Zealand, as a Senior Research Assistant in the Department of Paediatrics in the "Starship Children's Hospital," University of Auckland, New Zealand, and as a Junior Scientific Officer at the Vasantdada Sugar Institute (Pune, India).
