Describe your research in lay terms.

I would like to be a good scientist in the field of cancer research. My main goal is to identify a universal cancer stem cell specific marker and its target.
What has been the best part of your experience as a postdoc at UNMC?
My favorite part of working at UNMC is working under the guidance of Dr. Surinder Batra (chairman of biochemistry and molecular biology). He gave me very good platform to do good research. I owe a heartfelt thanks to him and I also would like to thank UNMC for the great opportunity.
