Biological Systems and Organisms

My research integrates on interdisciplinary areas- Toxicology, Cancer Biology and Nanomedicine. Over 8+ years of research experience in toxicology and efficacy studies. Worked on B16F10 melanoma skin cancer and various other cancer models such as Lung, Liver, Breast and Ovarian cancer. In addition, 3+ years of industrial experience in cosmetology/skin care as a Formulation development Manager and Chemist in R&D formulation unit worked on skin care product development using natural RM. Preparation of toxicological profiles for RM, Ingredients and Impurities. Develop strategy to qualify new ingredients.Research findings were published in National/International journals and contributed chapters in the various books along with 7 International and 2 National Conferences attended and multiple workshops/seminars.
