Dr. Natarajan's major areas of research interest include cancer biology, functional genomic screens, drug discovery, biologics development and targeted therapy. His current research involves performing a functional genetic screen, combining bar-coded lentiviral shRNA library with HT-sequencing to identify modulators of TLR5 signaling. This study identified several candidates which differentially affect NF-kB activation by IL1, TNF and flagellin.
Dr. Natarajan earned his Masters in Biotechnology at The Indian Institute of Technology.
