Debayan De Bakshi
Credentials: My research attempts to describe the role of aberrant NF-ĸB signaling in the manifestation of chemotherapy resistance in Multiple Myeloma (MM), a hematological malignancy which is currently considered incurable. Specifically, my project deals with identifying the molecular mechanism by which MM leverages novel peptides generated in the tumor microenvironment to signal through components of the innate immune system, resulting in a drug-resistant progression and relapse of the cancer.
