Research Interests

Quantitative proteomics and molecular approaches towards potential cancer biomarkers

Our lab is focused on the application of mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomics approaches to identify biomarkers and therapeutic targets in a number of cancers including breast cancer and haematological malignancies. We are using state-of-the-art mass spectrometric quantitative methods such as 2-D DIGE, iTRAQ and label free to identify differentially regulated proteins between non-neoplastic and neoplastic conditions and for characterizing post-translational modifications for several cancers. Candidate target markers are validated using immuno assays as well as SRM assays. Further potential biomarkers are subjected for functional studies to understand the mechanistic insights using molecular biology tools.


Metabolomics approach for understanding metabolomic alterations in cancer

Our lab is also focused on identifying and quantifying key metabolites and lipids associated with various cancers using mass spectrometry and bioinformatics. Furthermore, our lab is working towards discovering non-invasive metabolite signatures towards cancer screening and diagnosis using non-invasive biofluids such as urine and saliva samples. The results of integrated proteomics and metabolomics data can be used to identify biochemical pathways involved in particular cancer and eventually for the identification of new prognostic and predictive biomarkers.
