PTEN researcher and trustee for patient charity

The story of Priyanka

I am a researcher with a long-term interest in the PTEN gene. I did my PhD studying the biology of PTEN from 2008-2012 and since then I have been working on the role of this gene in various human diseases. My current research focuses on understanding the science behind the various symptoms in PHTS and repurposing drugs for PHTS therapy. I am also the research trustee for PTENUKI, a charity supporting PHTS patients. As a trustee I bring the latest research on PHTS to the PTENUKI family and bridge the gap between the research and patient communities.
