After my Masters training in Microbiology, I was inspired to work in the field of human diseases caused by various microorganisms. Immunology being the foundation of all diseases finally led me to my chosen field of work which is the Immunology of Infectious diseases. My doctoral degree was awarded on 15th July, 2015 on evaluation of my thesis entitled “Polarized Immunity in Leprosy: Role of effector and regulatory T cell subsets in shaping host immune response”. During my seven year long tenure at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, I have learnt a lot not only about core research work, but other related activities as well. These include planning for the research, creation of funds, arrangement of meetings between collaborators, annual report writings, data analysis and overall project management. My tenure as Research Officer gave me an added advantage in learning the above skills even better. After completion of my PhD, I have worked as a Woman Scientist through DST conducted KIRAN IPR and gained valuable lessons in intellectual property rights and related topics such as technology transfer and commercialization at the Indian Council of Medical Research, New Delhi. Before joining Sharda University, SBSR as Associate Professor, I was working as Faculty at the Institute of Clinical Research, India.
