Shalini has completed B.Tech in Biotechnology from Kurukshetra University in 2010. Then she pursued her M.Tech from the West Bengal University of Technology. She joined Ph.D. in 2014 at IIT Jodhpur. During her PhD, she studied the role of NLRs in inflammation and brain cancer. Currently, she is in Australia.
My Lab experience
“I completed my B.Tech in Biotechnology from Kurukshetra University in 2010. I was then awarded the DBT scholarship to pursue M.Tech from the West Bengal University of Technology. During my post-graduation dissertation, I worked upon microRNA-mediated regulation in Taupathy cellular model, which developed my interest in neuroscience. During my Ph.D., my work was primarily focused on understanding the role of various NOD-like receptors (NLRs) in intra- or extracellular stress conditions and the effects of their dysfunction during glioma and other inflammations. I also investigated the association of activation of adaptor protein ASC in response to amorphous nano-silica particles on various lung cell populations. During my time in the lab, I evolved both as a scientist as well as a person. I really miss our intense journal clubs as well as the regular lab outings with our lab mascot Tanmay.”
