Dr. Swati Choksi is a Staff Scientist in the Laboratory of Genitourinary Cancer Pathology at the the National Cancer Institute, NIH. She received her Ph.D. and training in the Department of Immunology, Kimmel Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University. Her thesis work involved molecular modeling of peptide mimics of CD8 and develop therapeutics for graft versus host disease. These studies led to several patents. Dr. Choksi is currently interested in cell death and the fine balance of apoptosis, necrosis and autophagy that regulates the fate of a cell. Her current work is focused on connecting cell death pathways to tumorigenesis. Dr. Choksi is active in the NIH scientific community. She is a member of the CCR Staff Scientist/Staff Clinician (SSSC) Organization and has been very giving of her time by serving on many committees for the SSSC Organization since first becoming a staff scientist in 2008. She has and continues to serve on the Retreat Planning Committee, Social Networking Committee and the Professional Development Committee. Dr. Choksi is involved with the Immunology Interest Group, NIH by attending lectures and the annual retreat. Dr. Choksi  also volunteers her time and experience to judge abstracts/posters for F.A.R.E. and the SSSC.
