Tripti GuptaPosition in Extavour Lab: Post Doctoral Researcher
Current Position: Staff Scientist, NIH
Tripti was a postdoc in the lab from 2010-2014. She obtained her PhD in molecular genetics with Trudi Schupbach at Princeton University, and was a postdoc working on zebrafish development with Mary Mullins at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine before joining the Extavour lab.
In the Extavour lab, Tripti worked on germ cell regeneration in the amphipod crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, and established techniques for RNA-Seq in this organism. She also worked on germ plasm characterization in Parhyale, showing that a specific region of cytoplasm in fertilized eggs is required for germ cell formation, and published this work in EvoDevo.
Tripti is currently a Staff Scientist in the Division of Developmental Biology of the National Insititute for Child Health and Development of the NIH.
