Profile of Dr Tennore Ramesh

Tennore Ramesh is a well rounded scientist with widespread experience in academia, corporate and non-profit environments. He has over 29 years of in vivo experience in functional genomics, pharmacology, and toxicology of drug development. Dr Ramesh graduated in Veterinary Medicine from Madras Veterinary College, India. He was awarded a fully funded Graduate Research Fellowship to study in the USA and graduated with a PhD in microbiology and immunology from the University of Kentucky, Lexington, USA. He did his post-doctoral fellowship at the Ohio State University and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA . He went on to work in a biotechnology industry at CuraGen, a genomics company where he developed new genomic methods to identify drug efficacy and toxicity prior to entry into the market. When a family member was diagnosed with MND in 1999, he joined the ALS Therapy Development Foundation, Cambridge, USA. He was Instrumental in setting up the research program and served as the Founding scientist and Chief Scientific Officer from inception until 2003. The personal story of the origin and the journey of the foundation to a world class non-profit biotechnology company are showcased in the Sundance Film festival nominated documentary “So Much So Fast”. Due to the limitations of the mouse model and recognising the need for more basic science driven translational research, he moved again to the Ohio State University to develop the first zebrafish model of MND, He relocated to Sheffield on hearing about the inauguration of the innovative high tech Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience, SITraN to contribute further to MND/Dementia research.
