Summary of my research Interests: Many a genetically complex diseases such as cancers have ineffective chemotherapeutic treatment options. Decades of research has gone into determining the cause of each different type of cancer, and develop therapies to effectively treat them. However, it is well recognized that diets rich in green leafy vegetables and hence diet derived phyto-nutrients influence disease development. I am interested in developing a preventive strategy to minimize cancer occurrence. I think that a knowledge based useful dietary regimens for enhancing the efficacy of current therapies will better outcomes for patients. My students loved my:

Dr. Pande changed my perspective on Biochemistry. I will be taking my MCATs with a sense of confidence I did not have. She is simply awesome!!!! Her concepts are very clear, she works with me to solve problems and challenges me to learn. I will highly recommend her.
