Dr. Tiwari has received many research grants and awards during her research career, including the prestigious Ramalingaswami national fellowship from the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. Dr. Tiwari initiated translational research programs on biological-nanovesicles at SGPGI with the vision to improve healthcare through discovery of molecular predictors of diseases. Her research team has discovered and optimized a nanovesicles-based tool for predicting kidney injury, and also cues for targeting epigenetic modulators in diabetic nephropathy. Works from her laboratory provided the first unequivocal mechanism for the direct effect of insulin on nitric oxide production in the kidney and have demonstrated a significant role of renal insulin receptor in whole body glucose metabolism and hypertension. Dr. Tiwari has taken several initiatives to launch investigations to assess high risk pregnancies and cervical cancer.
