Profile Summary 

Tatini Rakshit received B.Sc. with Honours and M.Sc. in Chemistry from Jadavpur University. She earned her Ph.D. under the supervision of Professor Rupa Mukhopadhyay, at the School of Biological Sciences, Indian Association for the Cultivation of Sciences, Kolkata where she studied the tunability of Ferritin protein-based solid-state bioelectronics. Then she moved to the School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University, Ohio as a postdoctoral fellow and worked on the organization of rhodopsin in retinal membranes to elucidate the mechanism of rhodopsin signaling in photoreceptor cells, under the mentorship of Professor Paul S. -H. Park. Subsequently, she joined Professor Yamini Dalal’s Lab as a postdoctoral fellow at the NCI/NIH, Bethesda where she developed a protocol to quantify the nanomechanical properties of nucleoprotein complexes. Before joining Shiv Nadar University, she served as a DST Inspire faculty fellow at S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata with Professor Samir K. Pal as a collaborator.  In her independent research career for three years in India, she mainly focused on biophysical dissections of cancer cell-derived extracellular vesicles for identifying critical biomarkers to facilitate the detection of the evil disease at the earlier stages.
