Rajendran, Praveen Associate Professor


My research focuses on the discovery and development of novel therapies for colorectal cancer interception and investigating epigenetic pathways implicated in the early stages of the disease. As PI or co-Investigator on several NIH-funded grants, I laid the groundwork in identifying novel epigenetic mechanisms of dietary compounds that affect Wnt/?-catenin and DNA repair.

I also have extensive Pharma R&D expertise in developing novel anticancer drugs through close collaboration with R&D teams. As the Director of Antibody and Biopharmaceuticals Core (ABC), I support and advance the development of monoclonal antibodies.
