Research: 
I completed my Ph.D. on “Role of microRNAs in HPV-mediated cervical cancer” in 2014 from Delhi University, Delhi, India. I am investigating the role of a cell adhesion molecule called Protocadherin-7 in prostate cancer progression. I am also working on the effects of tetrandrine, an alkaloid isolated from Chinese herb, against cancer cells. My primary research goal is to extensively explore the targeted therapies in cancer.
