Sridhar Sivasubbu completed his PhD from M.S University, India and postdoctoral research from the CSIR- Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology, India and the University of Minnesota, USA, with specializations in genetics and genomics. Sridhar joined the CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB), in 2006 to establish the functional genomics program. He drafted the blueprint for IGIB to venture into high-throughput genomics through unique research programs such as mapping the genome and transcriptome of wild zebrafish. In the year 2009 his laboratory initiated human genome sequencing in India and catalyzed the application of genomics for diagnosis of genetic diseases. His leadership skills enabled international collaborative genomics activities aimed at understanding the Asian genome diversity. His current research interest is focused on sequencing human genomes for adoption and benefit in healthcare with applications in rare genetic disorders. He is also developing zebrafish models for application in precision medicine in humans. His laboratory is also exploring non-coding RNA mediated regulation of vascular development and diseases, wherein his group is credited with the discovery of a number of non-coding RNAs. Sridhar holds membership in several scientific societies and holds journal editorial responsibilities. His has published numerous scholarly works. He co-founded the Genomics for Understanding Rare Disease: India Alliance Network (GUaRDIAN), which is one of the largest precision medicine ecosystem in India working on rare genetic diseases. Sridhar also served as the CEO of The Center for Genomic Application, a Public-Private partnership company established for enabling research in the field of Genomics and Proteomics.
