Anjali A. Sarkar, PhD | Science Editor
Propelled by an inherent curiosity in how life works at the cellular and molecular level, Anjali A. Sarkar did her B.Sc and M.Sc degrees in human physiology with a specialization in microbiology and immunology from the Department of Physiology at University of Calcutta, India. Her PhD dissertation from the Department of Biophysics, Molecular Biology and Genetics also at the University of Calcutta, investigated novel mutations in hemoglobin that cause thalassemia. Thereafter she moved to the US and did her first postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical University of Ohio on the development of the peripheral nervous system.
For her second postdoctoral position at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC, she studied neural and placental development. Her research has involved analyses of protein interactions, post-translational modifications of proteins, and functional assays in animal models and cultured cells. After a brief period as Research Assistant Professor at George Washington University, she went on to work as Scientist at MindSpec Inc, reviewing, annotating and analyzing molecular and behavioral models of autism. Dr Sarkar’s scientific writing and editing niche encompasses mental health, neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders, and neuroimmunology. Concurrently, she has taught biology courses at Trinity Washington University in Washington DC and Stevenson’s University in Owings Mills. She has worked as Technical Scientific Editor at The Scientist Magazine’s Creative solutions department where she developed content on frontier biotechnological advances such as Next Generation Sequencing, Chimeric T-Antigen Therapy and Multicolor Flow Cytometry.
As a medical writer and editor for Eubio, Dr Sarkar has developed continuing medical education content in oncology. As a scientific editor for ScienceSquared Ltd., she has chaired online webinars on cryoelectron microscopy, live cell imaging, single cell analysis and other biotechnological advances. Anjali is passionate about learning and writing about the science of life and living life to its fullest.

Jacob Kluge | Photographer
Jacob K. Green. Jacob Attends the university of Denver CO and has been a medical cannabis supporter for several years now. In his free time Jacob experiments with different cannabis strains in his indoor garden, running controlled tests on plants using different methods of training and grow techniques in an effort to not only gain an overall understanding of how different cannabis strains react to different grow methods, but also to figure out what methods work best for their respective strains. He is a strong believer that cannabis can be used as a greatly beneficial medicine and should only be used by responsible adults, those who chose to grow their own cannabis should do so with great care and caution.
