School of Life Sciences, Indore University, Indore, India
Dr. Jyoti Bhojwani, is presently a Faculty of Genetics/Bioinformatics/ Principal Investigator of the M.Tech Research Programs (Bio-Informatics)at University of Indore, India. She obtained her B.Sc.(Bachelors degree) in Biological Sciences/Chemistry/Physics, M.Sc.(Master?s degree) in Life-Sciences, and Doctoral degree (Ph.D.) at School of Life-Sciences, University Of Indore. She pursued her post-doctoral ventures at Max-Planck Institute For Biophysical Chemistry (FRG), University Of California-Irvine and University Of Pittsburgh (USA). Currently, her projects mainly focus on translational-research and extrapolation of basic developmental mechanisms from model-systems like fruitfly (Drosophila) to human. Apart from this, her thrust areas of research interest include; Cancer Biology, Stem-Cell Biology and Homeotic-Gene Regulation. She is keen on studying in details the genetic factors, which presumably aid in understanding of mechanism by which ?cancer stem cells? function in transforming a tissue from normal to cancerous states. Her research has a motive to further facilitate the perception of stem cell potential/mechanistic in areas of Regenerative Medicine, Translational Research and Anti-cancer therapy. Being involved in Clinical informatics, her students are also training a Cancer model and a Stem cell model, deploying Systems Biology approach and other Gene Networking BioInformatics tools. This novel area of research will hopefully lead to further understanding the tipping of balance from a stem cell/normal cell to a transformed cancer cell. Owing to her immense interest in science journalism and writing potential, she is now on the editorial board of several International Journals. Her Specialties Include: Research/Teaching/Mentoring/Science-Journalism.
