Rajneesh Srivastava, PhD

Dr. Rajneesh Srivastava received his doctoral degree in informatics with a specialization in bioinformatics from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). After his PhD, he was an Assistant Research Professor, Department of Surgery, at Indiana University.

During his PhD, he developed integrative computational genomics-based approaches to uncover the tissue-specific regulatory networks in development and diseases. He constructed a computational framework called “in-silico phylogenetic footprinting” that predicts the compendium of transcription factors that potentially regulate the gene associated with disease phenotype.

Dr. Srivastava is passionate about continuing to develop computational pipelines using multi-OMIC approaches. His research focuses on investigating the novel scar-free healing property of human fetal skin applicable to regenerative medicine. He is also interested in rejuvenating wound healing in diseases such as diabetic foot ulcers. His lab is working collaboratively to re-investigate the genetic profile and altered signaling pathways of diabetic foot ulcer patients using genome-wide functional genomics approaches at single-cell resolution.

Dr. Srivastava is the recipient of the John R. Gibbs Scholarship for research innovation and academic excellence at the School of Informatics and Computing, IUPUI. He has more than 20 peer-reviewed publications.
