Prior to joining CSR, Dr. Bhagavan served as Senior Scientist and Diagnostic Director of a biotech company and directed a multi-center, FDA-regulated clinical study to validate an Alzheimer’s Disease diagnostic test. This work stemmed from her postdoctoral research at Georgetown University examining cellular and molecular aspects of memory and its role in Alzheimer’s. She received her Ph.D. in neurobiology at Ohio State University where she investigated GABA-mediated physiological and behavioral mechanisms underlying learning and memory. Since joining CSR, she has been an SRO in the Brain Disorders and Clinical Neuroscience group and is currently overseeing peer review of several international initiatives as the CSR Fogarty Review Coordinator.
