Research Interests

Our group focusses on understanding cell cycle regulatory mechanisms underlying normal development and disease manifestation. For this we study genes (i) with mutations linked to microcephaly (small brain) and (ii) whose dysregulation/dysfunction is associated with neural cancers. We use state-of-the-art cell and molecular biology approaches in neural cancer /stem cells and brain organoids, to establish the spatio-temporal roles of such developmentally important proteins.
