I received Bachelor degree in Pharmacy from N.D.M.V.P.S' College of Pharmacy, Nashik, India (Pune University) and Master of Technology in Bioprocess Technology from U.D.C.T. Mumbai, India (Mumbai University). After completing Master I worked as a junior manager for 2 years in Dr. Reddy's lab Ltd and Wockhardt Ltd in bio-therapeutics downstream processing group. In 2010 I joined Dr. Apte's lab at KUMC as a research assistant and worked there for 2 years.

Research interest

Currently, I am pursuing my PhD in Dr. Udayan Apte's lab. My research focuses on identifying biomarkers of liver regeneration following Acetaminophen (APAP) overdose induced Acute liver failure (ALF). Liver regeneration is a major deciding factor in final outcome of APAP induced ALF so it is crucial to identify easily measurable and reliable biomarkers of liver regeneration. I am also studying role of hepatic progenitor cells in liver regeneration after APAP induced ALF.
