Currently, at NYU medical center, i am studying the role of tankyrase in Wnt and Notch signaling.
previously, I received Arturo Falaschi ICGEB postdoctoral fellowship for three years to carryout research on TDP-43, a splicing factor and also clinically important protein in various neurodegenerative diseases.
During my PhD, my research was focused on understanding the structural basis for the stability of family 10 xylanase from Bacillus Sp. under poly-extreme conditions and published four research papers. I have good experience of plant tissue culture, protein purification from transgenic plants, proteomics analysis of plant proteins. Besides, I have received a US patent for developing a system using signal peptide of above mentioned xylanase to secrete out foreign proteins from chloroplast and target them to desired sub-cellular organelles.
