C. Personal Statement:

I am a clinician-scientist working in the field of rheumatology with special interest in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. I have been working on biomarkers of SLE and Lupus Nephritis for last 10 years. I am one of the principal investigators in the project on establishing the largest inception cohort of SLE patients (INSPIRE) in India. My current areas of work in SLE are Autoantibody profile with ANA patterns heterogeneity and serum metabolomics. I am also an associate member of the Autoantibody Standardization Committee (ASC) in Rheumatic and Related Disorders of the International Union of Immunological Societies (IUIS) and working on ANA patterns in SLE. I have ongoing collaborations with IIT, Delhi, Tripura University and University College, London for my research work related to SLE and other rheumatic diseases.
