Dr Karthika Radhakrishnan is a post-doctoral researcher working with Professor Kate Loveland in the Testis Development and Germ Cell Biology Laboratory at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research.

She completed a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Mumbai University, India. Thereafter, she joined the Reproduction Biology Laboratory and subsequently completed her PhD under Dr Pradeep Kumar G, Kerala University, India.

Dr Radhakrishnan’s PhD thesis focused on the role of histone methylation in germ cells during pubertal phase of development in order to ultimately examine if aberrant methylation of histone resulted in infertility.
