    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview

    My research interests are centered around understanding the cellular, biochemical, and molecular basis of human diseases-- particularly cancer and certain rare genetic disorders. The major aim of my research is to understand, how certain genetic and epigenetic events contribute to the development/ or progression of these diseases, identifying regulatory pathways and druggable targets.
