Research Interest

Punit Kaur along with other members of the organization focus on the research and development of heat shock protein-based therapies to be used alone or in combination with current therapies for the eradication of triple-negative breast cancer. Recent studies on surface receptors and gene expression of breast tumors have come up with a term triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), creating a phenotype and disease quite distinct from that seen in HER2- or ER-positive breast cancers, which is a much more aggressive disease without tumor-specific treatment options. Our studies employ gold nanoshell-mediated hyperthermia in combination with radiotherapy and chemotherapy, also known as the triple-modality approach. These studies received RGP Award from Scott & White Memorial Hospital.
