KL Deemed to be University Ph.D. Scholar Receives New Investigator Travel Award for 2023

July 2023: KL Deemed to be University is delighted to announce that Lakshmi Sowmya

Emani, a Ph.D. scholar in the Department of Biotechnology, has been selected to receive the

prestigious New Investigator Travel Award for 2023. This remarkable achievement is a

testament to her exceptional research under the guidance of Dr. Jagannatha Rao, Pro

Chancellor of KL Deemed to be University. The esteemed Awards & Honors Committee of

the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS), based in the USA, has

bestowed this honor upon her. Lakshmi will have the opportunity to present her

groundbreaking research work at the award ceremony, which is scheduled to take place in

September 2023 in Chicago.

Lakshmi specializes in Neuroscience, and her presentation will focus on her pioneering study

on the change in DNA structure from B-Z form in the neurodegenerative brain. Her research

proposes the potential impact of this structural change in causing cell death in the brain,

ultimately leading to debilitating conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. As

brain disorders continue to be a significant global challenge, with an estimated 155 million

cases projected by the year 2050, understanding the mechanisms behind brain cell death

becomes imperative. It is noteworthy that only 5-8% of these diseases are genetically

determined, while anyone can be susceptible to developing these brain disorders.

She has collaborated with prestigious institutions like OIST in Japan and has been awarded

the ISN travel award to visit the United States. Additionally, Lakshmi has plans to collaborate

with the Paris Brain Institute and other renowned institutions to delve deeper into the

mysteries of the brain and gain a better understanding of brain disorders. Her motivation to

explore these challenging disorders stems from her experiences visiting hospitals and

witnessing the impact on brain-affected patients.

Dr. G. Pardha Saradhi Varma, the Vice Chancellor of KL Deemed to be University, expressed

his admiration for Lakshmi's intellectual prowess and broad-minded approach in unraveling

the complexities of the brain. He further revealed that the university is planning to establish

a multidisciplinary Brain Centre, where groundbreaking discoveries can be brought to the


Lakshmi's recognition with the New Investigator Travel Award for 2023 highlights her

significant contributions to the field of neuroscience and her dedication to understanding

brain disorders. KL Deemed to be University congratulates her on this remarkable

achievement and looks forward to her continued endeavors in advancing our knowledge of

the human brain.
