Tumour Angiogenesis Regulation and Cancer Genetics
Dr. Dixit's research interest is to understand the genetics and molecular biology of various human genetic diseases, especially cancer.
During her postdoc in University of Utah, she worked on angiogenesis in eye disease and developed interest in this subject. Abnormal growth of new blood vessels plays an important role in many diseases, including cancer. To treat cancer, various potential anti-angiogenesis drugs have been tested with limited success. Blocking just one regulatory pathway may not be enough. To date, all these angiogenic-switch regulatory molecules and their mechanism are not known. In order to do that, her research group is interested towards the validation and elucidation of the molecular mechanism of putative angiogenic regulators. Moreover, her group is also working towards the ilucidation of genetic predisposition for Gallbladder cancer in the population of Odisha.
Dr. Dixit regularly offer two theory and two practical courses in odd or even semeter.
