🙏Hello and welcome to this page!🙏

Tryambak completed his PhD with Dr. Karmakar. He has been working on elucidating the role of the Androgen Receptor in the pathogenesis of Breast Cancer. This prospective study was carried out simultaneously in cell lines and the subjects with breast cancer undergoing surgical interventions at AIIMS, New Delhi. His doctoral research was assisted by a group of basic scientists, pathologists, surgeons; medical, surgical, and laboratory oncologists. He remains grateful to the generous funding support from the ICMR, DHR, and SERB for laboratory funding and CSIR-UGC in terms of senior research fellowship.

Tryambak obtained his B.Sc. B.Ed. dual degrees from the Regional Institute of Education, Bhubaneswar, a constituent unit of NCERT, New Delhi.
