Dr. Diya Binoy Joseph, joins the Centre for Inflammation and Tissue Homeostasis at inStem. Diya received her B. Tech. from the National Institute of Technology, Calicut, Kerala and in 2013 she joined the Cellular and Molecular Biology PhD program at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. In 2019, she began her postdoctoral training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas in the Department of Urology. Using state-of-the-art technologies such as single cell sequencing and computational biology, Diya identified novel cell types in the mouse and human urinary tracts that has important implications in tissue homeostasis and disease. Her work at inStem will focus on the study of immune defenses and homeostasis at the urethral barrier.
