Ramani Ramchandran received his Ph.D. degree from the Medical College of Georgia in 1997. He pursued a post-doctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Vikas P. Sukhatme at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. In 2002, he was recruited to NCI where he started his first laboratory. Since 2007, Dr. Ramchandran has joined the faculty at the Medical College of Wisconsin. His research interests include problems in vascular biology and its application to disease.
