Ph.D. Biomedical Sciences - Creighton University, Omaha, NE - August 2016

MSc., Biotechnology - Bangalore University, India - June 2006

  • University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA - Sept.,2016 to June, 2017

Swastika grew up in Kolkata, India. She earned her PhD degree from Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha, Nebraska. Her thesis research involved the investigation of the role of Polo-Like Kinase 1 and smooth muscle cells in coronary artery bypass conduits and arteries following angioplasty. Before that, Swastika earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Biotechnology from Bangalore University, India.
