Selvakumar Elangovan

Associate Professor

Dr. Selvakumar Elangovan was graduated from the University of Madras in 2006 in the field of Biochemistry. Then, he did postdoctoral studies at New York Medical College, USA and Georgia Health Sciences University, Augusta, USA. He has studied the mechanisms of the chemopreventive effects of natural compounds during his postdoctoral studies at New York Medical College. During his tenure at Georgia Health Sciences University, he has extensively studied the molecular signaling mechanisms of breast cancer initiation, progression and metastasis. Dr. Selvakumar is currently studying the molecular mechanisms of breast cancer invasion and metastasis. He is specifically interested in the signaling pathways associated with the estrogen receptor alpha (ERα), estrogen-related receptor alpha (ERRα) and TGFβ. He is also studying the chemopreventive and anticancer mechanisms of natural and plant-derived compounds. Along with research, he is teaching biochemistry, molecular biology and enzymology subjects to Master’s students.
