Deepa Mathew, PhD

Dr. Mathew joined the Vinberg lab in March 2022 as a postdoctoral research associate. She completed her doctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Raghava Varman Thampan at Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology, India, where she studied epididymal albumin and its interaction with sperm membrane proteins. She was fascinated by circadian biology after her summer training in the laboratory of Prof. M. K Chandrasekharan at JNCASR India. 

During her previous postdoctoral stints, Dr. Mathew studied the effect of circadian rhythm disruption on retinal physiology in mouse models in the laboratory of Dr. Ashay Bhatwadekar at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute, and characterized the circadian and metabolic phenotype of ID2 null mice in the laboratory of Dr. Giles Duffield at the University of Notre Dame. 

Currently, Dr. Mathew is interested in investigating the molecular mechanisms involved in retinal remodeling during photoreceptor degeneration.
