Dr. Anandharajan (“Anand”) Rathinasabapathy completed his baccalaureate degree (1999) in pharmacy at the J.S.S. College of Pharmacy in Ooty, India. He received his M.S. (2003) in research from Anna University in Chennai, India. Anand began his doctoral studies in the United States at the University of Florida in Gainesville in 2009, pursuing a Ph.D. in pharmacodynamics. Immediately following receipt of his Ph.D., (2015), he entered a postdoctoral fellowship in the Division of Allergy, Pulmonary, and Critical Care Medicine at Vanderbilt (under the mentorship of Professor James D. West) studying the role of ACE2 and KCNK3 in pulmonary hypertension. Anand’s research during his postdoctoral fellowship was also guided by Dr. Anna Hemnes. As Research Instructor in Medicine, Anand continues the work of his mentors and also seeks independence through his own project submissions. He is well-published and has strong editorial experience. An enthusiastic researcher and teacher, Anand is eager to work with students and trainees to share his knowledge of laboratory techniques and experimental design.
