Determining the metabolic biomarkers involved in neurogenesis and neural fate commitments in human brain and their implications in neurological disease modeling: The study involves generation of iPSC lines and iPSC-derived neurons from indian patients suffering from idiopathic autism. These patient-derived brain cells would then be used as cellular disease models to delineate both metabolomics and transcriptomic signatures for identifying disease-specific metabolic biomarkers. Untangling complex molecular mechanisms governing plasticity of microglia in human brain: Our laboratory is trying to understand the gene regulatory mechanism in microglia cells, which primes their plastic behaviors, including immunomodulation and neuroprotection in human brain. Developing cellular disease models to understand host-pathogen interactions for drug discovery platform: Understanding cellular damages triggered by invading pathogen or pathogen derived factors, requires utilization of robust cellular disease models in vitro, which can unravel the novel molecular targets. Our laboratory is committed towards exploring neuro-inflammatory signals underlying onset of pathogenic manifestations of cerebral malaria and also the host innate immune-sensors involved in kalazar.
