Dr Renu Dhingra joined BSc (Hons) Human Biology at AIIMS, then completed her MSc (Anatomy) at AIIMS, followed by a PhD. She further worked as a Senior Demonstrator in the Department of Anatomy, AIIMS. Later, she joined University College of Medical Sciences, New Delhi as a Lecturer and thereafter at Gulf Medical College Ajman, UAE. Subsequently, she joined the department of Anatomy at AIIMS as an Assistant Professor.

Her research interest is in placental biology. At present, she is working on ‘apoptotic, oxidative endoplasmic reticulum stress  and angiogenetic markers in pre –eclampsia . Her current research also focuses on migration and invasion studies on trophoblastic cells. The laboratory has the infrastructure for handling cell lines, conducting in-vitro assays, apoptotic, cytotoxic assays and other molecular biology techniques like ELISA, Immunofluorescence, Western Blot and PCR.

She has established the Plastination laboratory in the department. The plastinated specimens serve as valuable adjuncts for teaching Anatomy to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
