Vaishali Kapoor - Editor

Journal of Internal and Emergency Medicine

Editor Name: Vaishali Kapoor

Designation: Research associate

University: University of Washington

Country: USA

Biography: Vaishali Kapoor earned her Ph.D from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. She is currently a postdoc in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine. Her research involves development of novel drug candidates against radiation-inducible neo-antigens. Radiation treatment induces cell-surface expression of novel intracellular proteins. Several peptides have been identified and monoclonal antibodies have been generated against these antigens. Her aim is to identify and characterize a lead peptide and antibody which can be used for pre-clinical efficacy studies and then be extended to the clinic. In addition to the drug-discovery research, she is trying to understand the biological mechanisms involved in development of radiation-induced lymphopenia. She has successfully developed a mouse-model for radiation-induced lymphopenia. Using this in vivo model we have shown for the first time that radiation induces lymphopenia by both direct and indirect effects on the bone marrow stem cells
