Poornima R. completed her post-graduation in Biotechnology (2016) from Kuvempu University, Shivamogga, Karnataka. Later she has pursued Industrial Internship at Biocon Research Centre, Bangalore. She has worked as Project Assistant at Institute of Bioinformatics and Applied Biotechnology (IBAB), Bangalore. She joined Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine (CSBMM) at Yenepoya University in May 2019. She is currently working on mass-spectrometry based proteomics in cancer.
Industrial Biotechnology, Molecular biology, Proteomics, Yeast genetics, cancer biomarkers
In my previous work experience, the work focus has been on tuning the expression of pharmaceutically important proteins in Yeast models. This has given me extensive hands-on experience in yeast genetics, molecular biology and gene editing tools like CRISPR/Cas9.
The current work focus is on proteomics in cancer subtypes. Particular attention is given to Gastric cancer proteome, Post-translational modifications and Data-Independent Acquisition based biomarker panel development for gastric cancer diagnosis and prognosis.
