Varnica Khetrapal, PhD


I obtained my PhD degree from National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2016 followed by three years of post doc at NUS. My research was based on developing new genetic tools for Enterobacteriaceae. I'm particularly interested in bacterial genetics, pathogenesis, and new technologies for genetic engineering.
