We are excited to welcome postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Sangeet Lal, to the Keller laboratory. Sangeet brings expertise in malignant glioma tumor microenvironment and unique animal model to our laboratory & program.
An introduction in Sangeet's own words,
" My first exposure to basic science research happened during my M.Sc. at I.I.T., Bombay, India, and my interest in this career matured during my tenure as a research assistant at ICGEB, India. I want to establish my research career in developing tumor cell-specific targeting strategies. During my doctoral training in Jeffrey Greenwood’s lab at OregonStateUniversity, I developed my knowledge of cancer cell biology while studying the mechanisms regulating invasion of glioblastoma cells using transparent zebrafish as in-vivo and organotypic mouse brain slices as ex-vivo approaches. My post-doctoral research in Dr. Keller’s lab will focus on investigating factors responsible for leptomeningeal metastasis in pediatric brain tumors. "
