After receiving his MD from Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Arash entered the pathologist fellowship at the same university. His interest lies in cellular micro-pathobiology, especially the post transcriptional regulatory role of microRNAs. He studied the role of mir-290 in development of mouse extra-embryonic tissue.
Archana Shenoy transferred to the Blelloch Lab in 2009 to study the role of microRNAs in differentiation. She defended her thesis in May 2014 and stayed on in the capacity of a Post-doctoral fellow leading the analysis of a number of microRNA sequencing projects. Archana is now pursuing a Master's degree in biomedical informatics at Stanford University. She has a LinkedIn profile, check it out.
