Dr. Mohammad Salman Akhtar, have been awarded Ph.D degree in Medical Oncology from Department of Biotechnology Jamia Millia Islamia (A central University), New Delhi in collaboration with Department of Surgical Oncology, DR. BRA, Institute Rotary Cancer Hospital, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi India. • His doctoral research is entitled “Molecular Analysis of BORIS and CTCF Gene in Indian Female Breast Cancer Patients”. The study was designed to find out mutation(s) of BORIS and CTCF gene and their protein expression through immunohistochemistry in breast carcinoma and its further correlation with various clinico-pathological variables. A significant association of BORIS gene mutations were found with various clinicopathological variables like menopausal status, clinical stage, nodal status, ER and PR expression. Similarly, a significant association of CTCF gene mutations were found with clinico-pathological variables like menopausal status, clinical stage, nodal status and ER status. In conclusion, BORIS and CTCF mutations may be used as a prognostic factor for breast cancer risk in our population and these gene mutations in combination may help in assessing breast cancer risks in Indian women. • He has published more than ten research papers in a peer reviewed good impact factor international journals and participated & presented papers in various national and international conferences. • He has completed masters in Toxicology from Department of Medical Elementology & Toxicology, Jamia Hamdard University, New Delhi, India. • B.
