Maithreyi Narasimha studied medicine as an undergraduate (St.John's Medical College, Bangalore). Her doctoral research was on Genomic imprinting in the mouse in Azim Surani's lab at the Wellcome Trust/Cancer Research UK Institute, Cambridge University (The Gurdon Institute). After a short postdoctoral stint in Maria Leptin's lab (Institut fuer Genetik, Universitaet zu Koeln, Germany) studying cell shape changes during Drosophila gastrulation, she returned to Cambridge to Nick Brown's lab ( The Gurdon Institute, Cambridge) to study cell adhesion in the context of epithelial morphogenesis. She joined TIFR as Faculty in July 2006.
