Dr. Sukriti
Assistant Professor (Molecular & Cellular Medicine)

Dr. Sukriti is PhD in Medicine from University of Delhi, with specialization in Hepato-immunology, Inflammation, Viral Immunology, Extracellular Vesicles and nanomedicine. She did three years of postdoctoral training at one of the world’s leading University, University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), USA. Recipient of highly meritorious American Heart Association (AHA) postdoctoral award. She is also trained at Center for Research on Inflammation (INSERM), Paris, France for a year. Presently, she is working on extracellular vesicles (EVs), specifically microvesicles (MVs), as intercellular communicosomes and replacing cell therapies with EVs therapy as a potential revolutionary therapeutic tool which will be a new era in the field of regenerative medicine. Recently, she has published in Alimentary pharmacology and therapeutics that hepatic MVs are the baseline biomarkers to predict the response to corticosteroid therapy in severe alcoholic patients. She also published in Journal of viral hepatitis that EVs serve as reservoirs of HBV infection, carry HBV DNA after its clearance from plasma post treatment, mediate viral replication and can transmit infection. This novel data may help develop new therapeutic strategies or prophylactic options for the management of advanced liver diseases
