There are two main research themes being pursued in the laboratory of molecular oncology. Firstly, we use genomics, molecular genetics, cell biology and molecular pathology to identify and characterize novel oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in cancers prevalent in India. Secondly, we perform molecular analysis of disease causing mutations in several genetic disorders to understand various post/co-transcriptional mechanisms such as splicing and nonsense-mediated decay.
