Jayeeta, MS

Alzheimer's Disease Preclinical Research Lab

Previous Member 2012

Jayeeta Manna, MSJayeeta worked with our Alzheimer's Research program from 2012. She worked for us for a short time helping with curcumin measurement and cell culture, but she is very much missed and a pleasure to work with. She received her Masters Philosophy at Jadavpur University in Environmental Science. She received her Masters of Science in Human Physioogy with Community Health and Bachelors of Science in Physiology at Vidyasagar University in 2007 and 2005 respectively .
