I received my master’s degree in biotechnology from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India and PhD from the department of Microbiology and Cell Biology, from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. After my doctoral study, I moved to International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, New Delhi for my first postdoc where I worked on the role of micro-RNA in the pathogenesis of HIV-1. After that I moved to NEOMED in 2014 and joined Prof Dr Tariq M Haqqi (Haqqi lab) as a postdoc. Since then I have been working on the understanding of the molecular pathway(s) involved in the pathogenesis of Osteoarthritis (OA) and identification of novel therapeutic target(s) for its treatment.
