The lab is currently focussed to investigate altered brain communications related to cognitive abilities in autistic brain and decipher the underlying attenuated molecular mechanism in idiopathic autism. The outcomes of the research may provide novel therapeutic biomarkers relevant to early diagnosis in autism.

The Translational Neurobiology &  Disease Modeling Group (Dr Soumya Pati)

Our group is surveying the human brain for regulatory proteins that resolve the plasticity in phenotypic preferences of microglial cells during the allostatic events across all the human developmental stages. We are also studying inflammatory cascades in microglia triggered by menacing pathogens such as Plasmodium or Leishmania through neurological disease modeling. Simultaneously, using Stem Cell Technology, we are trying to harvest breakthrough information about the metabolic protein signatures vital for the specification of neuronal fate and propagation of various neurological deficiency states within the human brain.
