Mohit Kumar Jolly

I am an Assistant Professor at the Centre for BioSystems Science and Engineering (BSSE) at IISc Bangalore. I completed my Bachelor’s and Master’s from IIT Kanpur, and my Ph.D. in Bioengineering at Rice University, where I investigated the presence of hybrid epithelial/mesenchymal phenotypes in cancer metastasis. Then, I was a Gulf Coast Consortia Postdoctoral Fellow jointly at Rice University and UT MD Anderson Cancer Center with Prof. Herbert Levine and Prof. Samir Hanash, developing data-based and spatially extended computational models for tumor microenvironment, before moving to BSSE.

Besides thinking about systems biology approached to decode cancer metastasis and therapy resistance, I am passionate about effective science communication and outreach, and am affiliated with the Centre for Society and Policy at IISc to pursue that realm of interests.
