  • @DrLauraSanchez @gakaur @HowardUniv @chemwmn Congratulations Gagandeep!! More power to you. Rise and shine....

  • @DrLauraSanchez @gakaur @HowardUniv @chemwmn @gakaur is an absolutely brilliant scientist.. Very proud of her work. Wishing her success for an independent research career.

  • I just want to give a shout out to @gakaur in starting her independent position @HowardUniv Check out her website: We were connected through the @chemwmn and it has been an amazing experience. Trainees check it out today!

  • Gagandeep Kaur of @TAMUmedicine, USA, is nominated in the #LabHeroes21 awards! 🏆 @gakaur was praised for her patience, generosity, kindness & support in the lab. 👩‍🔬 Nominations close on 8th Dec so don't delay! Tell us about your lab hero today:

We will do that for sure with the official launch of the full platform in december :) Please fill the survey and share it with everyone, even if they are not themselves Sikh or Scientists, but may know of 1.

  • @SikhScientists @RaviSinghKA @SikhPA @roti888 @SCUKofficial @BritSikhAsso @BritishSikhDocs @sikhchannel @Sikh_Research @SGPCAmritsar @KaurMovement @LookASingh @NarinderKG @KaurChemist @gakaur Excellent initiative. It would be useful to draft and share a vision statement - often a brief strapline. That underpins the mission statement.

  • Please help us spread the word @RaviSinghKA @SikhPA @roti888 @SCUKofficial @SikhDoctorAssoc @BritSikhAsso @BritishSikhDocs @sikhchannel @Sikh_Research @SGPCAmritsar @KaurMovement @LookASingh @NarinderKG @KaurChemist @gakaur

  • @gakaur Good work. Just wondering if silica nanoparticles could be used as a microcarriers ?

  • @gakaur Thank you for your fantastic contribution! 😊

  • @hello_bio @CaitlinAamodt @BerdyAndTheBees @gakaur @DrMatthewLloyd @BronwenMMartin @StuartMaudsley @TweetwithQuinn @HKNVee This compilation is fantastic! Thank you for inviting me.

12Years Experience of Research

Dr. Gagandeep Kaur is a tenure-track Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Howard University. Dr. Kaur has strong expertise in engineering biomaterial-based platforms for drug delivery and biomedical applications. Dr. Kaur earned her Ph.D. in Bioorganic Chemistry at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur), India. During her doctoral studies, Dr. Kaur’s research focused primarily on the assembly and implementation of peptides and peptide-based biomaterials in the study of Alzheimer’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.
Her ongoing and future work is focused on the development and implementation of precision biomaterials and immunotherapies to treat or prevent chronic diseases and cancerous conditions.
