Shilpita Karmakar, Ph.D.

Associate Research Scientist

My primary research focus is Hematological malignancies. I am primarily looking into aging and cancer using cutting edge technologies like scRNA and ATAC.

I have studied platelets in different Hematological disorders like Asymptomatic Constitutional Macrothrombocytopenia, Thalassemia and Chronic Myeloid Leukemia as a part of my PhD studies. I have used proteomics and MALDI mass spectrometry tool to accomplish my research work. To continue my research interest in the field of hematology I have worked with Musashi RNA binding protein2 in my Postdoctoral research work that is highly expressed in hematological malignancies like CML. I have used techniques polysome profiling and biochemical methods to identify the functional translational targets of MSI2 . In order to pursue my research interest in the field of hematology my current research interest is to look into the underlying pathways of clonal hematopoiesis and cancer in aging in mice and human using scRNA and ATAC.
