Dr. Prashant Kumar, Ph.D
Dean - Research
Director - SIRAC
Somaiya Vidhyavihar truly harbors unique power to convene the brightest minds to work on the most eccentric ideas. I believe it is our responsibility to use these resources to catalyze a positive impact in society. We are committed to bringing a strong synergy of education, research, and community engagement.
My aim as a Dean - Research would be to promote the Technology, Innovation and Education (TIE) Programs and also nurture creative leaders across disciplines. As a Director SIRAC, I desire to establish an ecosystem of research teams where biologists, clinicians, chemists, engineers, and statisticians will be working on a similar platform to create innovative intersections of research and strengthen our knowledge to improve healthcare delivery. The interdisciplinary research intends to foster a unique and dynamic culture of collaboration, curiosity, and ambition at SIRAC which will further promote and accelerate groundbreaking discovery in the advancement towards cancer vaccines, precision medicine, molecular diagnostics, bioengineering, and artificial intelligence.
I further invite you to visit our Institute and learn more about our innovation, ambition, and creativity.
