Manju Hingorani is currently a Program Director with the National Science Foundation

While at Wesleyan, the Hingorani group investigated proteins responsible for DNA replication and repair. These proteins maintain genome and cell integrity, and their malfunction leads to cancer and other diseases. Hingorani taught undergraduate and graduate courses in molecular biology, biochemistry, enzyme kinetics, and was interested in integrating science education with other disciplines through team-taught courses such as Making the Science Documentary (taught with Jacob Bricca; Film Studies) and Body Languages: Choreographing Biology (taught with Katja Kolcio; Dance).
