Geeta Mandava


I work with the development and application of methods to get a better understanding of the molecular and toxicological interactions of chemical and toxic hazards. Cell-based in vitro assays are used to study the effects of bioactive chemicals in various sources like water, food, soil etc. 



I assist and train students in cell lab/lab  to perform bioassays, follow GLP practices in both sterile and non-sterile conditions.
