Genomics and Biology of Neurological Diseases

Our laboratory is interested in elucidating the pathogenic mechanisms underlying neurological disorders that impact movement, learning and memory. We are taking a multidisciplinary
approach to investigate the molecular, cellular and circuitry changes that form the basis of neurodegenerative disorders to develop strategies to delay or prevent the death of neurons.

Our current research focuses on the following directions:

  • Modeling neurological disorders using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and organoid culture
  • Cross talk between differentially regulated protein kinases in type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Alzheimer's disease
  • Cognition and synaptic plasticity in diabetes mellitus
  • Neuron–glia crosstalk in health and disease
  • Integrative analysis of Wilson's disease: Indian Collaborative Research Network on Wilson's Disease (iCROWD)
