Tapan K. Bera
National Cancer Institute
Tapan Bera received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the Calcutta University, India. He completed his postdoctoral research training in the Cancer Research Laboratory, UC Berkeley and in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology, National Cancer Institute. Currently he held the Associate Scientist position at the National Cancer Institute, NIH, USA. His research objectives are focused mainly on to understand the molecular basis of cancer by identifying the genes involved in this process and translate that information to possible targeted therapy of cancer. He has discovered several very interesting and important genes whose expression is restricted to normal prostate and prostate cancer and are now being developed as therapeutic targets for the treatment of prostate cancer. He is author/co-author in more than 65 papers published in peer-reviewed journals.
