Dr. Anuradha Budhu began her scientific career as a student researcher in the Undergraduate Biology Research Program (UBRP) at the University of Arizona, studying gene expression patterns in the larval brain of Drosophila Melanogaster. These studies were continued at The University of Adelaide in Australia through the UBRP Biomedical Research Abroad Vistas Open (Bravo!) Program funded by a Howard Hughes fellowship. After completion of her bachelor’s honors degree in Biochemistry/Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Arizona, Dr. Budhu joined the graduate program in Biochemistry at Cornell University, where she earned her Ph.D. studying the roles of retinoids in mammary carcinoma. In 2002, she joined the Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis at NCI as a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) postdoctoral fellow in the Liver Carcinogenesis Section. She was promoted to Staff Scientist in 2007 and Associate Scientist in 2018. Dr. Budhu has authored over 50 peer-reviewed articles and 6 book chapters. Dr. Budhu is an active member of the Staff Scientist and Staff Clinician (SSSC) community at CCR, having served as Co-Chair of the SSSC Communications Committee and Editor-in-Chief and Founder of the SSSC newsletter (The Dossier). She is the recipient of several awards, including the CCR’s Outstanding Postdoctoral Award, the NCI Director’s Innovation Award and the NCI Director’s Award.
