Dr. Srujana Medithi
Dr. Srujana Medithi (email@example.com) is the Junior Faculty in area of Neuropathy and Nutritional Science at Medical Science and Healthcare Unit of OE Division, NSRIC. Dr. Medithi received her doctoral degree in nutrition from Osmania University, India and is currently teaching nutrition for post-graduation course (Master’s of Science) at Symbiosis International (Deemed University), India. She is involved in teaching nutrition courses specifically Nutrigenomic courses such as cell and molecular biology, genetics, nutraceuticals and functional foods, nutritional biochemistry and practical courses involving laboratory techniques. In her previous role as a research fellow at ICMR – National Institute of Nutrition, India, she was able to gain immense experience in conducting comprehensive literature search, proposal writing, carrying out community-based participatory investigations, hands-on training on high-end analytical instruments, data management, statistical analysis, data interpretation and writing of project reports/manuscripts. Her doctoral research works relate to micronutrient inadequacy in vulnerable population groups of farm women and farm children. To the best of knowledge, this study is first of its kind, aimed to comprehend the adverse health risks among these groups who are burdened with pesticide toxicity coupled with micronutrient deficiency. The investigation accentuated the vital role of micronutrients in determining the individual’s susceptibility to pesticides.
Her passion for teaching nutrition and research in the areas of nutrition inadequacy, interactions of micronutrients and their underlying mechanisms lead her to seek this opportunity.
Everything she have engaged in so far has all been driven by her keen interest towards nutritional science. She has consistently displayed her friendly but careful approach towards students while being meticulous in planning and highly organized
