Brief Biography:

My professional scientific career started with my Ph.D. thesis (2004-2008) which focused on investigating the role of thrombotic factors in the development of thrombotic stroke and other thrombotic events (such as deep vein thrombosis). My investigations resulted in major insights into the role of various candidate genes especially thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) in the development of stroke in young Asian Indians. The results of my thesis and supporting work have been extensively published in indexed journals and presented at conferences. Presently I have been working with Prof. Oldenburg as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Factor XIII group on heterozygous deficiencies in Factor XIII. Ongoing projects include screening patient populations for F13A and F13B gene mutations, in vitro expression of these mutations to establish their causative pathologies and structural analysis of the FXIIIA2 and FXIIIB2 dimer. My postdoctoral work so far has generated three important publications which highlight the clinical importance of heterozygous FXII mutations. I have so far published 10 first author articles (in fields related to hemostasis and thrombosis including Factor XIII) and 26 articles overall, in indexed journals (h index: 4, Researcher ID: B-9673-2011). My future plan is to expand the perspective of research on FXIII in our institute in different directions and to expand and consolidate our core group in this regard.
