Achuth Padmanabhan received his PhD in biological sciences from University of Maryland Baltimore County, USA. His PhD work led to the discovery of a novel signaling pathway that causes accumulation of the key oncoprotein MYC in cancer cells, a discovery that has huge therapeutic potential. He also uncovered new mechanisms that regulate the stability of the prostate-specific tumor suppressor protein NKX3.1. He currently works as a postdoctoral associate at Yale University, USA where he studies the assembly of yeast and mammalian proteasomes. Achuth has authored many research papers in reputed international journals and serves as reviewer and editorial board member for several journals.
