Postdoc Fellow – Dr. Pradeep Chaluvally-Raghavan’s Lab
My research in Dr. Chaluvally-Raghavan’s lab uncovers the roles of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) on post-transcriptional and translational regulation of oncogenes. My research particularly focuses on RBPs are overly expressed in cancer cells due to copy number variations (CNVs). Using molecular biology, cell biology and biochemical approaches, we are characterizing the mechanism of action of RBPs in cancer cells. By evaluating the potential role and underlying mechanism of RBPs in breast and ovarian cancers pathogenesis we will able to develop a potential biomarker or therapeutic targets for these most common and dreadful cancers in women.
