Dr Trupti Gaikwad


I joined the Marine Biological Association in October 2019. I am responsible for working with Dr Glen Wheeler with research projects – with help of molecular techniques I develop transgenic lines to understand the physiology of diatoms ( specifically Calcium signalling and redox signalling). My second responsibility is as Laboratory Manager for the Microscopy suites. Here I train and guide new staff and students on high spectral microscopes which involves super resolution confocal microscopes, Laser-capture microdissection and several other microscopes. I also maintain all ERC cultures in the laboratory. I am winner of Asian Women of Achievement Science Award 2020.
