Women in science: I am a woman, a wife, a mother, and a scientist!

Dr. Manveen K Sethi serves as Instructor of Biochemistry at the Boston University School of Medicine, USA. She did her Ph.D. at Macquarie University (MQ), Australia, under the primary supervision of Dr. Morten Thaysen-Andersen,where she utilized mass spectrometry proteomics and glycomics analysis to understand underlying molecular mechanisms in colorectal cancer . After her Ph.D., she joined Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), USA, as a postdoctoral associate under Prof. Joseph Zaia, where she is currently employed in a research faculty-track position of Instructor. Her research work involves identifying and characterizing biomolecules such as proteins and glycans using mass spectrometry techniques and utilizing this information to understand biomolecular deregulation in human diseases, such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Recently, she received a Bright Focus Foundation fellowship award to investigate extracellular matrix changes in Alzheimer’s disease.
