Clinical Proteomics : Understanding of cancer and viral diseases through clinical proteomics

Broad research activities

Our aim is to understand changes in cellular proteome due to various biological/disease conditions using advanced quantitative and targeted proteomics approaches.

At present, our lab is mainly focused on cancers (such as Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, cervical/ovarian cancer) and various viral diseases (such as Rabies, COVID-19, Chikungunya, Dengue). We are interested to add many more diseases which are more relevant in this geographical region.

Ongoing /completed  Research projects/areas:

      Virus proteomics:

  1. Differential proteomics and genetics approach to reveal the cause of recent Chikungunya virus outbreak in India.
  2. Identification and Characterization of differentially expressed proteins in rabid animals: Implication in understanding pathogenesis
  3. Proteomics study to explore the signature molecules associated with severe pathogenesis of SARS-CoV-2 infection

      Cancer proteomics:

  1. Differential proteomics approach to identify and characterize protein/s involved in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma (NPC)
  2. Epidemiology of Cervical, Endometrial and Ovarian cancers and their association with viral pathogens and tumour markers: A case-control study in Odisha

Research focus of lab :

  1. Disease Proteome Mapping
  2. Bio-marker discovery in various clinical diseases
  3. To decipher the role of important protein/s in disease pathogenesis
  4. Identification and characterization of post-transnational modifications (PTMs) with respect to their role in disease pathogenesis

Our group is working on identifications and Characterization of Bio-markers in various Diseases, identification of PTMs and their role in disease pathogenesis using high throughput mass spectrometry-based proteomics approaches. We used various advanced proteomics approaches such as gel-based, non-gel-based, labelled, labelled free proteomics approaches in our experiments.
