I am a 3rd year PhD candidate working on Breast Cancer Genomics, in Genomics Research Centre (GRC) at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI), QUT, Brisbane, Australia. My research focus is to identify and validate microRNA related single nucleotide polymorphisms (miR-SNPs) commonly occurs in Australian Caucasian Women and to use these miR-SNPs for early diagnosis of breast cancer. I had my basic cell and molecular biology training at the Korea Institute of Technology (KIST). I completed my MS and Bachelor degree in Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering from Khulna University, Bangladesh. Studying such a multi-disciplinary subject opened up numerous windows for me to pursue my higher studies and I preferred Cancer Biology. Currently, I am trying to incorporate experimental (Genetics, Genomics and Molecular Biology) data to develop miRNA-SNPs as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool for breast cancer.
