Division of Pathology
Tata Memorial Hospital
She has been working as a scientific officer at Molecular Diagnostics and Translational Medicines since half a decade. Her lab is a division of Pathology at Tata Memorial Hospital. Over these years, her work primarily focuses on developing and standardizing, validating essential molecular diagnostics to be used for personalized therapy.
As a Scientific officer working in the Molecular Diagnostics laboratory, the primary vision includes Patient care by providing accurate, reliable diagnosis and to accentuate the performance of the laboratory towards achieving this goal on everyday basis. This includes developing new molecular assays which addresses the following D; biomarker for diagnosis, P: predictive value for prognosis, C: indicator for chemo sensitivity/ MDR, T: potential target for treatment, which will be accomplished on next gen sequencer platform by designing comprehensive gene panels for various disease and to make available these facilities accessible to all.
As one of the leading molecular diagnostic centers for solid tumors in the country, she has initiated a quality assurance program for molecular Diagnostics Molecular Pathology Quality Assurance Program [MPQAP], this initiative is taken up with purpose to develop method based proficiency testing for developing uniformity while maintaining the Quality of the molecular diagnostics tests being performed and interpreted in this country in collaboration with NCG.
