Profile Summary 

Dr. Srikrishan Jayadev did his doctorate from University of Delhi and AIIMS, New Delhi. During his doctoral studies, he worked on understanding the "Molecular basis of anti-cancer effects of Phyllanthus emblica". Thereafter, he joined GITAM University, Visakhapatnam as an Assistant professor. From there he moved to National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi as research associate under Dr. Chandrima Saha. There he worked on the role of miRNA in estrogen regulated apoptosis in human macrophages.

Later on he joined Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR as an Assistant Professor and established his own lab. His lab is currently working in understanding the changes in cellular signalling during drug resistance and disease progression in colorectal cancer.
