    I have 8 years of experience in molecular biology research. I published and reviewed international articles. I worked in various biological research fields which enables me to converge molecular biology to physiology. Other than basic science, I was also involved with translational science by screening drugs with in vivo models. I am learning and holding beginner level expertise in bioinformatics. I am involved in career counselling for underprivileged kids in India. I guided dissertation projects of 10+ master’s students in the field of biology. I assisted in grant and patent writings for my former and current groups. Therefore, I have diverse experience in the field of biological science and research.
