MSc (Applied Biochemistry); PhD
I completed my masters in Biochemistry from VBS Purvanchal University, India. Subsequently, I moved to Germany, for my PhD. During my PhD, I worked on psoriasis mouse model, and analysed the Treg-Th17 plasticity in CD18 hypo mouse model. Currently, I am working with Prof Shoumo Bhattacharya on screening and characterization of novel chemokine binding proteins from tick saliva (evasins), using Yeast surface display techniques. In order to further characterize these novel screened evasins as a therapeutic targets in several cardiovascular diseases like myocarditis and myocardial infarction, I am also involved in the development of experimental autoimmune myocarditis (EAM) and myocardial infarction (in collaboration) mouse models, and investigate therapeutic role of these evasins in these mouse models.
