Dr. Rajeev K. Tyagi completed his doctorate (Ph.D.) in Immunology/parasitology/Infectiology with a special mention of 'Tres Honorabel” at Biomedical Parasitology Unit, Institute Pasteur, Paris, France (2011) on a very challenging and demanding area of translational biomedical research. He developed 'humanized” mouse model(s) to study asexual blood and liver stage infection of P. falciparum with an objective to explore vaccine candidates, drug discovery and drug resistance. Dr. Tyagi worked at the University of South Florida as Postdoc fellow and used the developed humanized mouse to characterize attenuated asexual blood stage falciparum parasite. In addition, he made efforts to develop human-liver chimeric mice using TK/NOG mice to study liver stage infections of P. falciparum. Dr. Tyagi worked at Augusta University, USA as senior research associate and developed an understanding of the Pathogen differentiated dendritic cells and their implication in developing therapeutic interventional approaches for chronic periodontitis. Dr. Tyagi has been working to understand the role of nano-carriers in order to develop therapeutic approaches to address cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic inflammatory diseases. He has published 34 research articles in various journals of international repute and contributed 5 chapters to the international books. Currently, he is working as Assistant Professor in Institute of Science, Nirma University, Ahmedabad and his lab is funded by DST-SERB, New Delhi.
