Dr. Krithiga Shridhar
Research Fellow

I am a Periodontist and Epidemiologist focusing on cancer prevention and control in India. I am involved in scientific research, management, teaching, mentorship and capacity building. My work and interest in cancer spans burden assessment, environmental and lifestyle factors, molecular epidemiology, oral microbiome, screening and early detection, cancer-referral pathways, survival and health technology. I work in collaboration with population-based cancer registries, large cancer care institutes, non-governmental organizations, and domestic and international academic institutes, towards understanding cancer etiology, prevention and early detection. I also work across non-communicable disease projects involving diet, physical activity, cardio-metabolic outcomes, and inflammatory markers.
