About Premchand Rajeev
I did my graduation in Bachelor of Forestry from Forest College and Research Institute, Mettupalayam, Tamil Nādu in 2014. Then in 2016, I joined the Centre for Neuroscience at IISc to pursue my PhD degree in Neuroscience. I joined the Nano-Org lab of Deepak Nair with a curiosity to study and understand the nanoscale organization of synaptic proteins using super resolution microscopy techniques such as dSTORM, STED, and PALM. In my doctoral work, I studied the organization of synaptic protein SAP97, which is implicated in multiple psychiatric disorders. Outside my scientific pursuits, I am an accomplished classical dancer.
