Pratyush Suryavanshi, PhD

Postdoctoral Scholar

Pratyush obtained his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Utah in 2020. He is interested in the effects of chloride and volume dysregulation on neuronal and network excitability. He is also interested in the causative mechanisms of nuclear transport dysfunction and dendritic injury after various brain insults.
