Take up an idea – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, this is the way to success.
Our team works in a multidisciplinary approach using Nanotechnology to combat devastating diseases like Breast and lung cancer. One of the emphases here is to overcome lung cancer mutations which are induced after using various Tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Our laboratory is using various novel compounds which are acting as chemosensitizers and help in overcoming resistance in lung and breast cancers. We are also using exosomes as markers of tumor progression which can enable in diagnosis and tumor progression as a liquid biopsy. Another emphasis is to use 3D printing approaches to develop tumor scaffolds and also to conduct cytotoxicity assays using 3D printed co-cultures of tumor cells and fibroblasts. Apart from this our team is also printing Cornea using various bioinks.
The Mission of our team is to use Nanotechnology and 3D printing approaches to come up with new innovations in diagnosis and treatment for disease like lung and breast cancer, corneal wounds and obesity.
