The Ramakrishnan Lab connects basic research questions in exocytosis, exosomes, and SNARE proteins for biomedical applications.


Synapse on a Chip

Our synapse on a chip model helps dissecting the pathology of neurological diseases and aging.



Our lab aims to dissect the molecular mechanisms of exocytosis and how they alter in the disease.


Exosome Engineering

We aim to the engineer exosomes for diagnostics and targeted drug/gene delivery.


Organ on a Chip

Our goal of in vitro microfabricated organs-on-a-chip to replace animal models.
