    Pranav Oberoi

  • Pranav Oberoi obtained his Master’s degree in Neuroscience from the National Brain Research Centre in India, focusing on the role of protein kinases in photoreceptor development. He initially joined the group for his doctoral studies with emphasis on granzyme B fusion proteins as tools for targeted tumor therapy. Since receiving his Ph.D. degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Frankfurt in 2013, Pranav is a postdoctoral fellow in the group investigating novel approaches to generate genetically modified primary NK cells and enhance their antitumoral activity.
