Postdoctoral Research Fellow
I am fascinated by the fact that plethora of tiny gut-microbes are thriving in us harmoniously, represents the largest areas of contact inside humans with the non-human substances and are largely impacting the host health and disease.
My research is focused on understanding the power of gut microbiota and their associated metabolites in shaping the host physiology and metabolism and pathophysiology during metabolic disorders. Specifically, I will be investigating the role of bacterial metabolites (like imidazole propionate) on mammalian systems to decipher the mechanisms of complex interactions involved between the host and gut bacterial ecosystem. Ultimately, I would like to be a part of development of personalized treatment strategies to combat the scrouge of metabolic disorders using gut-based approaches.
