About Jagadish Mangu
Jagadish Mangu is a PhD student in biology at the Life Science Center, with a focus on systems biology, microbiology, and toxicology. He received his Bachelor of Engineering degree in Biotechnology from India, and Master degree in Molecular Biology from Umeå University, Sweden.
Jagadish Mangu is currently doing his PhD research at the interface of systems biology, microbiology, and toxicology using Caenorhabditis elegans as a model organism. The role of environmental toxicants in disrupting host physiology, in the presence of host microbiota is understudied. The major goal of his research is to develop gut microbiota models in the C. elegans and assess the influence of environmental toxicants on the nematode host using various physiological end points including gene expression, life span, fecundity, and reproduction
