Dr Jagat R Kanwar is the Professor in Nanomedicine and Head of Nanomedicine- Laboratory of Immunology and Molecular Biomedical Research (NLIMBR) at School of Medicine (SoM), Molecular and Medical Research (MMR) Strategic Research Centre, Faculty of Health, Deakin University. He has an international reputation and expertise in investigating fundamental and applied molecular signalling aspects of pathogenesis of cancer, chronic inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases, thereby, leading to the development of treatment strategies from bench to bedside.

He has an international reputation and expertise in investigating fundamental and applied molecular signalling aspects of pathogenesis of cancer, chronic inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases, thereby, leading to the development of treatment strategies from bench to bedside. He has more than 120 publications in high impact factor and peer reviewed international journals, 17 book chapters and 2 edited books. Prof Kanwar’s research has generated several patents/PCTs with more than five licensed patents for commercialization to BioPharma industry. His group is currently working on drug discovery and nanomedicine for oral and systemic drug delivery of a range of biomacromolecules (proteins/peptides, siRNAs and aptamers) for targeting survivin, HIF-1α and other apoptotic and inflammatory cell signalling molecules in cancer, chronic inflammation and neurodegenerative disorders. For commercially funded grants, his laboratory conducts research in the areas of dairy/plant immunomodulatory bioactives, elderly gut supplements, their role in bone /muscle development and osteoarthritis.
