Personal details


The success of check-point blockade therapies increased my faith in the concept of utilizing immune modulation to prevent tumor growth. This prompted me to pursue research involving tumor immunology. We are yet to fully understand the effect of certain immune cells on tumor progression. During my PhD, I intend to elucidate the role of B cells in cancer. Previously, I completed Master's in
Biomedicine at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden and Bachelor of Engineering (Biotechnology) at R V College of Engineering, India. I aspire to contribute to the growing field of cancer immunology hoping it will help in finding relevant therapeutic targets.
