Dr. Anandi Krishnan is a blood scientist at Stanford University. Before this, she received her PhD in Bioengineering from Penn State University in 2005. Then, in 2008, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Heart and Vascular Institute, Penn State College of Medicine. Krishnan then went on to become a stroke research fellow at Duke University in 2012.
Anandi Krishnan’s research at Stanford University focuses primarily on looking for gene markers in people with myeloproliferative neoplasms–blood cancers where too many white or red blood cels are produced in the body.
Krishnan had a family crisis a few years ago; however, she returned to her research and is accomplishing amazing things. She has demonstrated that people must rise through adversity and continue pursuing their passions. She is an inspiration to all.
