Dr. Puja Garg received her Ph.D. in Neurosciences from Central Drug Research Institute, India in 2006. Her specialization was developing rat and mice models of ischemia, Alzheimer’s –ischemia correlation model and studying mechanism of neurodegeneration and neuroprotection in these in vivo models. Coming from strong basic research background, she brings her insight and experience to the world of clinical research involving cardiovascular medicinal advancements and treatment methodologies at UTSW. Outside of her work she finds interests in arts and crafts and exploring wonders of nature.
