Professor Rameshwar

Editor-in-Chief:  Pranela Rameshwar

Professor Pranela Rameshwar obtained her education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI, USA and Rutger's University, Newark, New Jersey, USA. Her main academic appointment is at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Department of Medicine-Hematology/Oncology. Professor Rameshwar also has an appointment at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. She is also a member of the joint doctoral program in biomedical engineering between University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and New Jersey Institute of New Jersey.

Her research interests are focused on the mechanism by which breast cancer cells adapt a quiescence phenotype within the stromal compartment of bone marrow. Her laboratory also studies neural regulation of hematopoiesis, the immunology of adult human mesenchymal stem cells, and future potential for mesenchymal stem cells in various clinical disorders. Professor Rameshwar has received research grant funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, the F.M. Kirby Foundation, New Jersey Cancer Commission, and numerous other funding agencies. She has published widely on  research related to stem cell biology and breast cancer.
