Arko Paul


Doctoral Scientist

Arko is studying sex steroid physiology in the autistic brain using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). In the latter he is modeling neuronal development and gene expression in the autistic brain, with a particular interest in neuroelectrophysiology and the excitation-inhibition ratio. 

He is co-supervised by Dr Jason Carroll at Cancer Research UK in Cambridge, Professor Jack Price, Director of the Centre for the Cellular Basis of Behavior at King's College London (KCL), and Dr Mark Kotter at the Laboratory of Regenerative Medicine (LRM), Stem Cell Institute, Cambridge. His advisors include Professor Ludovic Vallier (LRM).

Prior to coming to Cambridge he was Junior Research Fellow at the National Brain Research Centre in India, in the Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Laboratory, Computational Neuroscience Division. He was also a Research Assistant in the Signal Transduction and Gene Regulation Laboratory, Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience Division, in the National Brain Research Centre, India.

He holds an MSc in Biochemistry and a BSc in Mathematics, Biochemistry and Zoology from the University of Calcutta. He is funded by the Cambridge Trust.
