Research Interests: LINC-RNA Therapeutics: Long intergenic non-coding RNA (LINC-RNA) molecules are critical in gene regulation via their sponging mechanism in controlling the micro-RNA molecules. LINC-RNA molecules are usually big and are structurally unstable due to which they have not been used effectively as therapeutics. My goal is to employ the LINC-RNA molecules as therapeutics mainly in Oncology for the suppression of genes, by stabilizing them using chemical biology approach.
