I completed my Masters in Biotechnology with Distinction from University of the Punjab, Lahore. Further in my M.Phil with Dr. A.R Shakoori, I managed to do CRISPR/HDR mediated gene editing in Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma cell lines (HepG2). Now I have joined Dr John Gurdon's Lab in The Gurdon Institute where my focus is on finding potential factors of the egg involves in somatic cell  reprogramming and resistance to reprogramming, by using Xenopus leavis as a model system.
