Sumana received her Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry/Zoology from St. Xavier’s College (India), Master’s degree in Biomedical Genetics from VIT University (India) and PhD in Vision Neuroscience at Hamilton Eye Institute, UTHSC Memphis, USA, where she worked on systems genetics of glaucoma using genetic reference populations. After graduating in 2016, she did a postdoctoral fellowship at The Jackson Laboratory, investigating the eye as a biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease. Currently, Sumana is investigating novel targets for differential angiogenic responses using genetic approaches and model organisms.
