David Barua is currently pursuing a PhD in Pathology, School of Medicine at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG). His research is mainly focused on understanding the role of unfolded protein response in ER-positive breast cancer and endocrine resistance. He also worked on ESR1 point mutant breast cancer cells and finding alternative treatment strategies to overcome the endocrine resistance. He completed a BSc (Honours) and MS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Chittagong, Bangladesh. He did his masters thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Abu Shadat M. Noman, where he worked to understand the status of sonic hedgehog in bladder cancer. After completing masters, he worked as a research assistant in the EuGEF laboratory, where he was involved in several projects on breast cancer. He awarded the Irish Research Council (IRC) postgraduate scholarship to pursue PhD in Ireland. He is the lead author and co-author of several scientific publications and presented his research in international conference, including AACR. He is a member of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), European Association for Cancer Research (EACR).
