Kalishwaralal Kalimuthu, PhD
M.K.Bhan-Young Researcher Fellow

The researcher is interested in the field of Nanotechnology, biotechnology and molecular biology. The researcher is particularly interested in cancer biology research and developing potential therapies to overcome cancer aggression. Research interests lie primarily in the areas of identifying molecular pathways through which to design appropriate cancer cell targeting therapies. One such approach is the utilization of peptides, for example from phage display libraries, to target chemical or biological therapeutics to cancer cells. The researcher completed four years postdoctoral research at the University of Pittsburgh, USA, Ariel University, Israel and Konkuk University, South Korea.
