“During graduate school, I would like to work on a cancer biology problem that is heavily translational and multi-disciplinary in nature.
I am really interested in the tumor microenvironment (TME) and I would like to study tumor-promoting/suppressing mechanisms promoted due to cell crosstalk in the TME. Alternatively, I am also interested in studying different molecular mechanisms that result in cancer initiation and metastasis. Ultimately, I would like to utilize my research findings to develop potential therapeutic interventions.”
