Molecular Aspects of Diabetes
Malabika Datta is interested in unraveling the molecular basis of diabetes. She employs diverse in vitro and in vivo diabetic models to identify aberrant signaling events and gene regulation associated with this complex disease. She is also interested in studying the crosstalk among various cellular organelles during the onset and progression of diabetes.
Currently, the main focus of her lab is to study the
• underlying molecular correlation between obesity and diabetes.
• mechanistic role of microRNAs in diabetes.
