Binukumar B. K.

Senior Scientist
Cellular And Molecular Mechanisms of Liver-Brain Axis in Metabolic Disorders

Binukumar is interested in understanding the specific neuro circuits and/or molecular pathways that are primarily targeted in Type 2 Diabetes related memory loss and Wilson's Disease and how they can be restored.



Our current research focuses on the following directions:
  • The Neurobiology of Type 2 Diabetes: Understand the molecular mechanism for Type 2 Diabetes- related memory loss
  • Integrative analysis of Wilson's disease
  • Patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells /organiod- disease modeling, drug screening and cell based therapy
  • Neuron–glia crosstalk in health and disease
