Area of Interest

  • Molecular oncology of Breast Cancer
    Research is focused on molecular oncology, exploring molecular mechanisms of developing kinase inhibitors resistance in various cancers that is acquired therapy-resistance. Therapy resistance is being one of the major challenges in cancer management. Here, we develop kinase inhibitor-resistant cells models, explore the molecular mechanisms of therapy resistance by approaching genetic, epigenetic, transcriptomics and proteomics approaches in multi-kinase inhibitor-resistant breast cancer models. Study stem cells behaviors in drug resistant models and their post-transcriptional regulation (miRNAs) targeting potential new drug target and biomarkers for therapeutics and prognostic purposes respectively. My doctoral study was focused to explore molecular changes in regorafenib and sorafenib resistance colorectal cancer. In my ICMR-Postdoct, explored the molecular changes in abemaciclib and palbociclib resistant cell models. Currently looking for the role of stem cell transcription factors in abemaciclib and palbociclib resistance breast cancer cells and their post-transcriptional regulation.
