Dr. Anupam Chakravarty is a researcher whose research interests have straddled the disciplines of biochemistry and genomics with a keen focus on the biology of cancer. Currently, he is a senior scientist developing liquid biopsy assays and products in the precision oncology space at Guardant Health. Prior to joining Guardant Health, he ran his own lab as an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. He obtained his Ph.D. from Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City and was a Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation fellow at Stanford University.

Anupam is motivated by a strong sense of community building and being deeply invested in the graduate education landscape. He is building and managing a global community of graduate students - GradGrid on Linkedin. He lives in the Bay area with his wife and a cat, enjoys the outdoors, and has a strong academic interest in learning about the world through the lens of postage stamps.

In this episode, we discuss the nuances of leaving a professorship to pursue industry research, the landscape of careers in graduate education, and the benefits of being a part of the GradGrid community.

Hosted by Joe Varriale.
