    Areas of interest
    :
    Neurodegenerative Diseases, Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Stem Cell therapies, Cognition.
    Areas of expertise
    :
    Stem cell therapies for Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease & Alzheimer’s disease.
    Areas of research
    :
    Neurodegenerative diseases are devastating diseases wherein there is no identifiable treatment available so far. The primary focus of our research group is to understand the molecular, biochemical and cytoarchitectural changes that lead to progressive neurodegeneration and behavioural impairments in temporal lobe epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. From neuroprotection perspectives, we are actively exploring the possibilities of stimulating endogenous stem cells for functional recovery by means of environment manipulation, novel drug treatments and stem cell therapy. In line with this, we have demonstrated that a single intramuscular injection of genetically modified erythropoietin can protect dopaminergic neurons in animal models of Parkinson’s disease. We have also reported that transplanting hippocampal cells in brain injured rats can prevent neurodegeneration and improves cognitive functions. Currently, we are involved in understanding the molecular mechanisms of neuroprotection conferred by transplanted cells in protecting hippocampal neurons and ameliorating cognitive co-morbidities that are commonly observed in temporal lobe epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
