Areas of interest include cellular and molecular biology, and cancer biology.
As a cancer biologist, my research focuses on understanding the initiation and progression of breast cancer using in vitro and in vivo experimental techniques. Over the course of my career, my research has spanned many areas including the role of stem cells in the tumor microenvironment, dysregulation of non-coding RNA, transcriptomics and metabolomics alterations in cancer, animal models of breast cancer, and understanding of cell signaling pathways in cancer progression. However, the central theme to my research has remained understanding the interactions driving breast cancer to develop better therapeutics for patient care.
Current research interests include development of natural compounds for cancer and osteoporosis therapy, understanding the role of non-coding RNA networks in cancer regulation, and exploring nanoparticle technology for the potential treatment of breast cancers.
