Ph.D. Project Title: Circulating free DNA for cancer diagnosis.
This research focuses on cancer diagnostics study by using high throughput genomic sequencing. Vikrant Palande is studying the newly emerging technique called ‘liquid biopsy’ which is a non-invasive approach of cancer diagnosis, using circulating cell-free DNA. This technique utilizes blood or urine sample to analyze the bits of tumor material (molecules as well as whole cells) for the diagnosis of tumor (if any) inside the person’s body.
