This is Tryambak Srivastava, currently a PhD scholar at the Department of Biochemistry, AIIMS, New Delhi.
My research endeavours revolve around unravelling the intricate role of the Androgen Receptor in Breast Cancer pathogenesis. This comprehensive study encompasses both cell line investigations and clinical research involving individuals undergoing surgical interventions at AIIMS. This multidisciplinary research venture is made possible through the collaborative efforts of basic scientists, pathologists, surgeons, as well as medical, surgical, and laboratory oncologists.
My academic journey commenced with an integrated B.Sc. B.Ed. program at the Regional Institute of Education, Bhubaneswar, followed by an MSc. in 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, a prevalent strain in South Asia and Africa. At SAU, I actively participated in a wide array of extracurricular activities, both within the university and on an inter-university scale.
Beyond academia, I also embrace my role as a lazy blogger and aspiring science communicator. Here, you will find my expressions in the form of micro-fiction, poetry, and contemplations. I hold deep pride in my roots and my mother tongue, Bhojpuri, and I desire to promote science communication in vernacular languages. In 2020, I challenged myself with the #365DaysOfScience initiative, where I shared daily science-related tweets. In 2021, I ventured into science blogging with the #TWiS section. I committed myself to reading and tweeting a scientific paper daily in 2022. You can find updates here.
