Avinash Sahu

Postdoctoral Research Fellow




My research interests lie in the area of Immunology, Statistics, and Artificial Intelligence. My research programs are tailored toward collaborative research to obtain a conceptual understanding of disease biology that enables developing personalized drugs, with emphasis on cancer-immunology. My group also addresses the need for statistical methods for Single- cell high-throughput sequencing and immunological aspects of COVID-19.
