Dr. C. Thirunavukkarasu

Research Area

I have been trained in the leading Thomas E Starzl, Transplantation Institute, University of Pittsburgh, PA, USA under renowned hepatologist Prof. CR. Gandhi. The institute is named based on the scientist Prof. Starzl who successfully carried out the first human liver transplantation. My thirst in higher learning and eagerness to get trained under Prof. S. Gupta made me to land in Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, Newyork, USA. After gaining rich experiences from the renowned institute and the eminent scientists  my research area fixates on combating liver diseases, such as hepatocarcinogenesis, liver tumor niche, fatty liver disorders, and hepatotoxicity, employing nanotechnology and biotechnological approach. My contributions have rewarded me the awards from recognized, reputed and prestigious academic bodies/societies. My passion towards teaching starts from foundation course such as “Cell Biology” to advanced level emphasizing the needs of the diseases free society such as “Cancer Biology”. With ample experience, I am a sedulous fervent researcher and believes in strenuous exertion rather than fortuity.
