Sudan Loganathan is currently a 3rd year PhD Candidate in Neuroscience and Pharmacology conducting his thesis research in the laboratory of Dr. Jailiang Wang in the Department of Neurological Surgery, Vanderbilt University Medical Center. His research focuses on understanding epigenetic drivers of various types of cancer, and utilizing newly developed target therapy to formulate a treatment option for these cancer types.
Sudan's background has included a strong educational foundation in the Biomedical Sciences. He completed his B.S. in Biomedical Sciences at Murray State University in 2013, prior to starting his pursuit of a PhD in Neuroscience and Pharmacology. He is also a member of the Vanderbilt Program of Molecular Medicine, which provides an unique opportunity for researchers to explore the clinical aspect of research, and understand how the discoveries on the lab bench may translate to treatment of patients in the clinic.
While Sudan was pursuing his Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Sciences (2009-2013), Sudan was very active in undergraduate research, which initiated his interest in biomedical research. He worked under the supervision of Dr. Alexey Arkov to biochemically characterize the function of a novel germline stem cell epigenetic protein. Subsequently, this led to his graduate career, working to understand the epigenetics of cancer.
