  • “I found him (Dr Boominathan) knowledgeable in his research field and his knowledge in the literature is up-to-date. He is capable of providing mechanistic insights into cancer signalling/pathways, presenting complicated schemes/models, and writing grant applications etc. It also provides ample evidence for the facts that he is already an established independent investigator. He appears to take multiple approaches to address the biological problems. For instance, he uses both bioinformatics approaches and network modelling to identify drug candidates. His research work is being recognized by his peers and he will have a chance to lead the chosen area of research in the near future”Associate Prof. D Kuppuswamy Ph.D., Associate Professor Medicine, Gazes Cardiac Research Institute, Charleston, South Carolina, USA

  • Dr Boominathan “demonstrates a firm grip of the p53 field and fathoms of the knowledge he has gained at the Weizmann” (Institute of Science). “Displays excellent knowledge or skills to execute current assignments”Prof/Dr Kanaga Sabapathy Ph.D., National Cancer Center, National University of Singapore, Singapore
