I have completed four years of post doctoral fellowship training from the prestigious MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA. I have been actively involved in investigating tumor immunology, tumor microenvironment, developing novel targeted immuno-therapeutics and understanding tumor biology from a computational biology perspective. Currently I am working in cancer genomics field and exploring the SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), INDELS (insertions and deletions), chromosomal rearrangements, gene fusion events and other mutations associated with heterogeneous tumors such as lung, breast and ovarian cancer. Recently, I have started exploring circulating tumor cells and circulating tumor DNA in the hopes of developing a commercially viable, technically sound and clinically valid reliable liquid biopsy assay for monitoring tumor recurrence and acquired resistance to targeted therapies.
