At that time she was working as a researcher in the Indian Cancer Research Center. She had a fellowship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. In Mumbai she established the country’s first tissue culture laboratory. She worked in rural communities in Maharashtra, training women after retirement in 1989.
