Profile

Mazumdar Shaw Center for Translational Research (MSCTR) is located in Mazumdar Shaw Medical Center, Narayana Hrudayalaya Health City. The center comprises the following research groups

  • INTEGRATED HEAD AND NECK ONCOLOGY
  • NEURO-ONCOLOGY PROGRAM
  • TUMOR IMMUNOLOGY
  • ANTI-CANCER TECHNOLOGIES PROGRAM
  • siRNA-BASED THERAPEUTICS & INFECTIOUS DISEASES
  • PERSONALIZED MEDICINE
  • JANA CARE
  • ONCOSTEM

Some of our on-going research projects are

  • Development of whole next generation cancer genome sequencing approaches to rapidly characterize tumor heterogeneity and cancer clonal evolution during therapy
  • Applying tissue engineering principles to develop culture systems that will provide us with better in vitro tumor modeling to understand cancer biology
  • Development of new biomarkers for leukemia, glioblastoma and head & neck cancers
  • Develop strategies to better identify patients who will not respond to conventional chemotherapy
  • Understanding the role of microRNA in cancer pathology and development of RNAi-based therapeutics
  • Improving targeted therapies for cancer by developing new delivery systems to deliver drugs locally and in therapeutic concentrations to relevant sites in living organisms
  • Understanding the role of cancer stem cells in cancer development and relapse
