Vaishali KapoorInstructor, Department of Radiation Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine
Vaishali Kapoor earned her Ph.D from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India. She completed her postdoctoral training in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine and is now a faculty member there. 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.
