Shruti Arya, Ph.D.

Shruti Arya is a molecular/cellular biochemist and biophysicist with several years of experience in leading collaborative and innovative research projects focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases associated with intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs). She has extensive experience in a wide-range of biophysical techniques used for studying biomolecular interactions, including fluorescence spectroscopy, ion-mobility mass spectrometry and Raman spectroscopy. Shruti received her doctoral degree from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Mohali followed by postdoctoral training from the University of California Santa Barbara and University of California San Francisco. She is excited about using her academic experience and skills towards drug discovery efforts involving IDPs. Outside of work, Shruti enjoys cooking, traveling and gardening.
