I am keenly interested in developing effective strategies for Gene Therapy which defend dreadful and debilitant genetic disorders. My other interests include unravelling the secrets of developmental regulation of gene expression and understanding the core mechanism of action of death genes in human beings. Ultimately, I want to dedicate myself to the field of Gene Therapy by doing something that is watershed in that field and leaves my foot prints in the sands of time.
