Dr. Naz obtained her PhD degree in 2013 from Indian Institute of Science, India. She then moved to USA to conduct her postdoctoral training. She is currently a Scientist at National Cancer Institute at NIH, USA where she conducts clinical and translational research in the field of cancer. Her primary research focus is identification of means to modify the radiation response of tumors without causing damage to surrounding normal tissues. Her research utilizes testing novel agents that target specific molecular pathways important in radiation responses to probe the radio sensitivity of cells/tissues. In her current role at NCI she manages translational research initiatives involving radiation modification, the influence of tumor microenvironment on cancer immunotherapy, and novel molecular imaging platforms to assess tissue metabolism.
