PhD Candidate at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi


Hello and welcome to my personal website. I am glad that you are browsing the site. 

As a PhD scholar at the Department of Biochemistry, AIIMS, New Delhi, I am working on elucidating the role of Androgen Receptor in the pathogenesis of Breast Cancer. This prospective study is carried out simultaneously in cell lines and the subjects with Breast Cancer undergoing surgical interventions at AIIMS. This research work is assisted by a group of basic scientists, pathologists, surgeons; medical, surgical, and laboratory oncologists. 

Followed by an integrated B.Sc. B.Ed. degree from the Regional Institute of Education, Bhubaneswar, I pursued MSc. Biotechnology from South Asian University (SAU), New Delhi. In my masters’ dissertation, we checked the efficacy of a Pfizer drug against HIV-1 Subtype C that is prevalent in the South Asian Region and Africa. At SAU, I was actively involved in various extra-curricular activities at intra and inter-university levels. 

Besides academics, I am a lazy blogger and wannabe science communicator. I write micro-fiction, poetry, and thoughts which you might find here. 

Please feel free to connect. May the mitochondria be with you…

Despite the difficulties, Jasleen was committed to fighting the illness, and she had a team of medical experts by her side who gave her the best care. Jasleen finally entered remission following several months of treatment, emerging stronger and more resilient than before. She is an inspiration to anyone experiencing comparable difficulties because of the lessons learned through her journey about the value of early detection, resiliency, and hope.
