Being a chemical biologist with research experience in the multidisciplinary fields such as synthetic organic, analytical, polymer, bioconjugation chemistry, and cell/ molecular biology. I have applied this knowledge towards the development of targeted drug-delivery devices using nanoparticles and antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) to improve the therapeutic index of many anticancer agents through structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies. I am highly motivated, productive and independent researcher with critical thinking, complex problem-solving abilities. I have been proficiently working in a team environment with an ability to work on multiple projects leading to increased productivity. With more than 7 years of experience in chemical biology, I have acquired expertise in drug discovery, site-specific conjugations for the preparation of homogeneous ADCs, multistep organic synthesis, total synthesis, bio-analytical techniques, and biological assays.

In addition to above assets, I have been efficiently managing lab waste as per EPA regulations and bulk order of common and special chemicals leading to cost reductions. I have added significant value in academic research by writing/reviewing grants/articles that have fostered industry collaborations to effectively translate therapeutic agents into the clinic. Recently, I have started my new adventure as a research fellow at MGH/Harvard Medical School with special focus on designing small molecules that can selectively target epigenetic gene regulatory complexes against multiple myeloma and acute myeloid leukemia.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
