Dr. Suresh Veeramani is currently working as Assistant Research Scientist at the University of Iowa, United States. He obtained his PhD in Immunology from Indian Veterinary Research Institute UP, India. Dr. Suresh Veeramani is trained as Cancer Researcher with translational focus. He has been doing research in the areas of Immunology and Cancer biology for the past 16 years. His research focus includes, elucidating the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways involved in carcinogenesis and progression, understanding the role of tumor microenvironment in anti-tumor immunity, and development of innovative translational approaches to manipulate anti-tumor immune cells. He currently works as an Assistant Research Scientist at the University of Iowa. His long term goal is elucidating the mechanisms of immune regulation during cancer progression and identifying ways to enhance immunity against cancer. His work focuses on developing novel RNA aptamer-based therapeutic reagents to reverse immune-suppression seen in infections and cancer. He also studies the role of innate immune mechanisms in induction of T regulatory cells in the tumor microenvironment. He has published 18 academic writings in journals as author/co-author.
