Pankaj Keshari has a Master degree in Biotechnology from Allahabad Agricultural Institute-Deemed University, India. He has worked in different research laboratories in Denmark, Norway and India. In his recent research at the Odense University Hospital, Denmark he studied the effect of different osteogenic growth factors on gene regulation and identified a signaling pathway using state of art molecular and cellular biology techniques.
Project title: "Immunogenetic loci characterization of multiple sclerosis"
The PhD project aims to characterize the molecular mechanisms in development and presentation of MS to make a basis for better strategies for MS treatment. Keshari will perform molecular characterization of molecules encoded by genes recently identified in the MS immunochip project.
