Dr. Gopakumar Gopinadhan Nair got his PhD in Biochemistry from Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala, India. He joined Dr. Sunila Pradeep’s laboratory in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in December 2017.

Gopakumar is interested in investigating the mechanisms by which microenvironmental factors reprogram the immune system in ovarian cancer. Epigenetic changes in the cancer constitute driver events in tumorigenesis. Our studies will focus on how these epigenetic modification in the tumor microenvironment will enhance the tumor growth due to drug resistance mechanisms. Using biochemical and high-through put genetic analysis, I am uncovering the epigenetic gene networks in Bevacizumab resistant preclinal models of ovarian cancer.
