About the Faculty
Dr. Tare joined BITS Pilani campus in July of 2017. She took her PhD in Biology at University of Dayton, Dayton, OH in 2013. Her Doctoral thesis work was in Dr. Amit Singh's Lab as a graduate student. Dr. Tare has worked on various projects during her PhD, which uncovered molecular and genetic mechanisms involved in patterning and neurodegeneration. For her doctoral thesis, she has characterized role of Cullin-4, an E3 ubiquitin ligase in regulating Wingless and JNK signaling pathways.
Their team also pioneered work in Drosophila models of Amyloid Beta mediated nerodegeneration. Tare et al, in 2011 reported the involvement of JNK mediated cell death upon onset of Alzheimer's Disease.
Dr. Meghana Tare worked as a post doctoral researcher in Dr. Andreas Bergmann's Lab in department of Molecular Cell and Cancer Biology at University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA  from June, 2013- July, 2017. Her post doctoral work was focused on understanding the genetic regulation of apoptosis.
For details of these works, please visit her publications page. 
Apart from Research work, Dr. Tare is interested in enhancing the undergraduate teaching curriculum. She would like to utilize the teaching and research experiences from different aspects to make undergraduate courses more fun, and, more connected to real world.
