I am a cancer biologist with 13+ years of experience and diverse background in clinical pharmaceutical sciences, cancer stem cells, cancer therapeutics, and data analytics. My research has focused on using innovative 3D organoid models for the understanding of cancer cell signaling pathways to facilitate cancer biomarker discovery and drug discovery for metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer. I have successfully completed multiple preclinical trials of which two drugs are currently in clinical trials. Some of the methodologies I have gained expertise in include high-throughput drug screening, preclinical trials, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, CRISPR screens, patient-derived xenografts, 3D organoid cultures, bioinformatics tools, and statistical analysis.
