Poornima Gadamsetty, Ph.D.

Poornima Gadamsetty is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Neurological Surgery. She completed her PhD at Cornell University after earning a master's degree from Duke University, specializing in optics and neuroscience.

Dr. Gadamsetty’s research focuses on establishing a zebrafish model for epilepsy. By simultaneously monitoring key cellular components participating in the generation and propagation of epileptiform activity, this research will aid in building a complete picture of the dynamic transition from normal behavior to seizure initiation and the spread of seizures in the brain.
