Pravalika Manda

Director of Special Projects (she/her)


Hello! I am a third-year microbiology and cell science major with a minor in bioinformatics. This is my second year in CURBS, and I am super excited to be one of the Directors for Special Projects!

I currently do research in the Department of Physiology and Functional Genomics, where my lab focuses on electrical stimulation as an intervention for spinal cord injury. I have always been extremely passionate about research and being a part of CURBS has allowed me to share that passion with others. As Director of Special Projects, I am looking forward to hosting and organizing events to help others get involved in research!
