Research Focus of the Lab

Presently the area of my interest is to elucidate the underlying cellular mechanisms contributing towards the chronic inflammatory state via the activation of an array of overlapping metabolic and inflammatory cross-talks in the adipose tissue of the obese individuals.

Obesity is a major problem worldwide that increases the risk for a wide range of diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The reason why obesity is so closely associated with inflammation and insulin resistance is not completely understood.

An increased Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) stress in obese individuals may be one of the underlying causes of the inflammatory state and insulin resistance in this metabolically dynamic and complex tissue. So, my current projects cater towards exploring the role of ER stress in obesity induced adipose tissue dysfunction and inflammation
