Nupur Biswas, PhD

Sr. Scientist – Omics

Nupur Biswas is working as a Senior Bioinformatics Scientist at Rhenix. She is working on bioinformatics and other multiple projects as well. Some of her projects include designing personalized neoantigen vaccines for cancer patients and exploring the genes behind Chordoma and the health applications of digital healthcare wearables.

Nupur has a doctoral degree in Physics and her research work focused on studies of confined polymers. Before joining Rhenix, she worked at the Indian Institute of Science, Raman Research Institute, Kolabtree, and the Indian Institute of Chemical Biology.

At Rhenix, she has gained experience as not only a research mentor but as a scientist contributing to various international publications.

Summary "Longevity: How far can we stretch it?"

The basic question of longevity is how long a human can live. The increasing number of centenarians indicates an increase in the average lifespan. To date, based on the available and reliable documents, the longest-living person...

Summary "Lifespan or healthspan which is your goal?"

Lifespan refers to the time a person lives. On the other hand, healthspan refers to the time during which a person lives a healthy life without any chronic disease and age-related disorders. However, defining a healthy life...

Summary "Organ aging signatures in the plasma proteome track health and disease."

As we age our organs also age but not at the same rate. The onset and effects of aging vary from individual to individual. Animal studies showed aging varies within the organs of an individual also. As we age our cells undergo...
