Research Interests

I like to think I am a Cell Biologist with a keen eye for Biochemistry. My research interests in Biochemistry includes canonical and non-canonical cell processes, including crosstalk, that are essential for determining cell death/survival following a transient cytotoxic/genotoxic insult. As for Cell Biology, I am interested in tunneling nano-tubes (TnTs) and their role in cell survival and tumorigenesis.
