Venkatesh Krishnan, PhD

Dr. Krishnan is currently an Instructor at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Stanford University. Dr. Krishnan has identified a key role for adipose tissue macrophages in ovarian cancer colonization of the omentum. His research interests are focused on defining the mechanism(s) by which the omental microenvironment supports and promotes progression of precursor cells to high-grade serous ovarian cancers, and ultimately peritoneal metastases. Dr. Krishnan graduated with a Ph.D. from Penn State University and received further training at the University of Chicago where he carried out preclinical validation studies and identified signals that could be used as biomarkers for risk and ultimately targets for prevention.
