I am a medical student conducting research on novel therapies in glioblastoma. I work on developing therapies specifically targeting glioblastoma stem cells, which are likely responsible for tumor initiation and recurrence. I am currently working on identifying genes critical for the function of these cancer stem cells, that are amenable to silencing by siRNA-mediated therapy. I am also interested in the delivery of siRNA and small molecules to glioblastoma stem cells through nanoparticle delivery systems.
