Current Research Activities

I completed my doctorate degree (2010-2014) at Deakin University, Geelong, Australia, in the Nanomedicine-Laboratory of Immunology and Molecular Biomedical Research (NLIMBR). The title for my PhD thesis was “Targeting cancer cell death using aptamer tagged nano-formulated survivin antagonists”. I was Awarded with Trade and Investment Ph.D. Student Researcher Award for excellence in nanomedicine research, at 2nd International Nanomedicine Conference, Sydney in 2011. I was also awarded Deakin University publication scholarship in 2013.

After finishing my PhD, I continued work as a postdoctoral research fellow working on development of natural therapeutics against colorectal and breast cancers until November-2016. For my oral presentation for targeting therapeutics towards effective colon cancer therapy, at the 2nd International Conference & Exhibition On Biotechnology, August 03-04-2015 at Leonia International Hyderabad, India, I was awarded the best speaker award.

I further moved to University of Bergen, Norway for my 2nd postdoctoral research experience in 2016. Here, I evaluated the therapeutic effects of natural anti-cancer molecule beta-Sitosterol on brain metastatic melanomas. I also evaluated therapeutic efficacy of combined inhibition of MEK and PI3K pathways in brain metastatic melanomas. Recently, I was awarded with Alfred Deakin Postodoctoral Research Fellowhsip (2017) at Deakin University, Australia. Here I am continuing my research on developing nanotherapeutics against brain cancer.
