Dr Shayanti Mukherjee


Dr Shayanti Mukherjee is a Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) John Stocker postdoctoral Fellow in the Women’s health theme at the Ritchie Centre, Hudson Institute of Medical Research. She completed her PhD at the National University of Singapore in 2013 where her work contributed to the growing body of nanobiomaterial research in repair and regeneration of infarcted myocardium.

Her current research investigates the evaluation of cell-based biomaterial constructs for pelvic floor reconstruction surgeries. Using her inter-disciplinary research experience across academia and industry, Dr Mukherjee has a strong interest in accelerating the clinical translation of stem cell based POP surgical constructs to improve the quality of life of millions of women worldwide.
