Dr. Aparna Bhaduri is a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California San Francisco in the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research, in the lab of Dr. Arnold Kriegstein. She previously completed her doctoral degree in cancer biology at Stanford University, and received her undergraduate degrees from Rice University. Dr. Bhaduri’s project for the BRAIN Initiative focuses on lipid metabolite diversity of cells in the developing neocortex.  She is optimizing technologies to generate a “Rosetta Stone” between lipid profile and transcriptional cell identities that are being identified by BRAIN Initiative projects, and to study how lipid signaling contributes to cell type identity during development.
