Ramasubramanian received his B.S. and M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Annamalai University, and the Indian Institute of Science, India, respectively. After a brief stint as Petrochemical R&D Engineer, he obtained his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Rice University, followed by post-doctoral training from the University of California at Berkeley. He has been as Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio since 2008. Ramasubramanian’s research is in the fundamental and applied aspects of Vascular Bioengineering. He is interested in understanding the mechanobiology of inflammation due to systemic infection, which will have implications in cardiovascular diseases. He is also interested in developing novel microarray-based high-throughput screening techniques for antimicrobial drug discovery. His research has been funded by both private foundations and federal grants.
