I, Ankita Arora am currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at University of Colorado-Denver, Anschutz medical campus.
I was born and raised in New Delhi, India where I finished my undergraduate studies in Biomedical Sciences. Then, I moved to Mumbai to pursue my masters in Biotechnology at IIT-Bombay. I graduated from University of Heidelberg, Germany, which was a great learning experience and exposure. In order to get more international exposure and gain expertise, I decided to move to US and did a short postdoc at University of California-San Francisco, which ended prematurely due to unfortunate circumstances.
Since my undergraduate studies I have been interested in the ever-expanding field of RNA biology. I have explored various aspects of RNA regulation from transcription initiation to translation and am currently expanding my horizons to RNA localization.
