Post Doctoral Fellow
My primary research interests include applying state-of-the art methodologies and instrumentation in Pharmacogenomics, cell and molecular biology to explore the mechanisms of different drug response in human cancers.
Graduate (Ph.D.) research at the University of Minnesota, College of Pharmacy, on Pharmacogenomics of chemotherapeutic agents, Carboplatin and Paclitaxel (single-agent and combination) in ovarian cancer and Non-small cell lung cancer.
My Postdoctoral work at the University of Minnesota on pharmacogenomics of Lamotrigine in pregnant epilepsy patients.
Currently, as Post-Doctoral researcher at the Harrison School of Pharmacy, Auburn University, I am exploring possible mechanisms metronomic treatment in Prostate cancer and Breast cancer.
My research focuses on combination of single cell transcriptomics, in vitro drug sensitivity profiling, next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics (data mining approaches-TCGA/GDSC, IPA) , large scale microRNA and mRNA expression profiling, molecular biology (CRISPR-CAS Loss of function/LOF; Gain of function/GOF, Immunoblotting, cloning, miRNA co-transfections) with identification of gene signature profiles associated with aggressive cancer as well as with metronomic treatment.
