Overview
Jugajyoti Baruah, PhD, is a post-doctoral fellow in the Angiogenesis and Brain Development Laboratory. Dr. Baruah is currently exploring multiple aspects of neurovascular interactions and signaling that shape brain development with lasting consequences for the mature brain. A particular focus is on understanding the importance of synapse specific gene expression in CNS endothelial cells and its significance for neuropsychiatric disorders.

Dr. Baruah received her MS in biomedical genetics from Vellore Institute of Technology University, Vellore, India. She then pursued a PhD in cellular and molecular pharmacology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her graduate training was focused on understanding the genetics of endothelial cell specific transcription factors in cardiovascular pathologies, for which she received the American Heart Association (AHA) pre-doctoral fellowship.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
