This is Tryambak Srivastava, currently a PhD scholar at the Department of Biochemistry, AIIMS, New Delhi.
I am working on to elucidate the role of the 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 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, poetries, and thoughts which you might find here. I take pride in my roots and mother tongue Bhojpuri with a hope to promote science communication in vernacular languages. In the year 2020, I stimulated myself with the #365DaysOfScience challenge to tweet daily about science. In the year 2021, I aim to blog science under the #TWiS section.
