Ramya Vijayram is a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Molecular Sciences at Macquarie University. She is working on homology alignment of olfactory receptors and GPCRs with low sequence similarity, for computational structure prediction. She has also worked on the analysis of the expression of several gene targets such as telomerase, TRF2, p21, NME2 and several other critical oncogenic targets in normal and cancer cell lines.
