We have a number of exciting projects for incoming MCB, M3D and graduate students from program in neuroscience.
We are an interactive and collaborative group. We seek engaged and motivated team members, who are excited by our questions.
Please contact Akhila (email@example.com) for rotation projects!
Here are some potential projects pertaining for incoming MCB, M3D and program in neuroscience students:
How lipid changes in the glial cells affect hormone access?
How proteins that traffic with human Leptin and Upd2 permit access through the blood brain barrier?
How does the nucleus provides the appropriate environment for fat hormone secretion?
How do autophagy factors interface with secretion factors?
Explore the intersection between innate immunity factors and fat hormone signaling.
We use systems approaches (protemics and lipidomics), super-resolution imaging. These are in conjunction with biochemical techniques, fruit fly genetics and cell culture systems. We also perform orthogonal proteomics-based experiments in human samples for discovery and hypothesis generation.
