Sulochan Malla, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow
National Institutes of Health
Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics

Dr. Sulochan Malla is a postdoc fellow in the Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics, National Institute of Health (NIH/NIA). Dr. Malla received his BS degree from SANN International College, Purbanchal University and MS/PhD from Florida Atlantic University. His research interests are on RNA dynamics and their impact on human health and well-being. During his PhD, Dr. Malla studied the molecular basis of RNA damage during oxidative stress and the cellular mechanism of handling oxidatively damaged RNA. RNA oxidation is associated with a large number of human diseases, predominantly age-related neurodegenerative disorders. Mechanistic understanding of RNA oxidation and their quality control process may help to unravel the etiology of many oxidative stress-related human diseases and their therapeutic intervention.

Dr. Malla has served as an editorial board member of JoLS since Jan 2021.

Postdoctoral Associate (previously held)
Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine
