Dr. Deependra Tyagi

Post-Doctoral Researcher
Nanotechnology Applications
 
Dr. Tyagi joing the VC team’s Nanotechnology Applications group in the summer 2017.  His work includes aptamer technology -- Aptamer technology, is gaining attention due to the advantage of stable structure, non-immunogenicity, ease of synthesis and cost-effectiveness. Due to their high affinity and specificity they serve as “chemical antibodies".  Its application includes, but is not limited to, gene therapy, immunotherapy, targeted drug delivery. Systematic evolution of ligands by exponential enrichment (SELEX) technology can be used for the selection of aptamers from different targets, i.e, circulating tumor cells or other tumor cells. In our research, we utilize pre-discovered aptamers and rolling circle amplification (RCA) for the development of cancer diagnostic and therapeutic platforms.
