About the Shanmugam Lab

At The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences we are focused on delivering high quality health care, advancing scientific discovery and translating discoveries into action.

The mission of Dr. Shanmugam’s Laboratory is to facilitate and develop observations made at the patient’s bedside into hypothesis-driven scientific research with a view to conducting ground-breaking translational research which advances patient health.

Through established funded projects and pilot projects conducted through the Ideas to Health process, Dr. Shanmugam and her team of physicians, nurse scientists, post-doctoral fellows, and project managers will develop bedside observations into hypothesis-driven research projects focused on translating findings back to the patient in order to advance healthcare.
