12Years Experience of Research

Dr. Gagandeep Kaur is a tenure-track Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Howard University. Dr. Kaur earned her Ph.D. in Bioorganic Chemistry at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur), India. During her doctoral studies, Dr. Kaurโ€™s research focused primarily on the assembly and implementation of peptides and peptide-based biomaterials in the study of Alzheimerโ€™s disease and cancer. After receiving her doctorate degree, Dr. Kaur conducted postdoctoral research at Texas A&M, where she studied the therapeutic value of mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of autoimmune disorders such as type 1 diabetes, lupus, autoimmune uveitis and Sjogren's syndrome. Dr. Kaur has strong expertise in engineering biomaterial-based platforms for drug delivery and biomedical applications. Her ongoing research work is focused on the development and implementation of precision biomaterials and immunotherapies to treat or prevent autoimmune diseases and cancerous conditions.
