Dr. Ramneet Kaur and her University of North Georgia (UNG) research student Sidhika Sharma, a senior pursuing a degree in biology with a minor in chemistry, recently published a manuscript about their breast cancer research in the journal Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry.

"As our work is already published, I feel confident that I am on the right track and going in the right direction," said Kaur, a lecturer of biology at UNG.

Titled "One-Pot Mild and Efficient Synthesis of [1,3] Thiazino [3,2-a] Indol-4-ones and their Anti-Proliferative Activity," the published article discusses the testing of 14 synthetic compounds as possible treatments for triple negative breast cancer, a very aggressive form of breast cancer.

"There is no targeted treatment available for this type of breast cancer in clinic currently," Kaur said. "My research focuses on using natural products for the treatment of triple negative breast cancer."

Sharma, a 21-year-old from Buford, Georgia, is excited her research is published, which will help advance the science and treatment of breast cancer.

Sharma is set to graduate in May 2019.
