Kaushiki Biswas

Assistant Professor

The primary research focus of my lab is to investigate and identify key molecular pathways involved in Neuroinflammation, a major contributor and in many cases, a driver of several brain disorders and diseases. Towards this goal, I am particularly interested in the fascinating cell biology of microglial cells, the central players in neuroinflammation and central nervous system homeostasis. The fundamental questions that I am striving to understand are: 1) how do microglial cells sense and respond to an external stimuli ? 2) what are the molecular mechanisms that regulate morphological and functional plasticity of microglial cells? 

Research positions open: Currently I am looking for candidates who are interested to do their Ph.D. in my new lab. Sincere and hard-working research aspirants holding M.Sc degree in any branch of Life Sciences with CSIR/UGC-NET fellowship or NET-LS can apply with their CV to kaushiki.dbs@presiuniv.ac.in. Desirable: a good ability to communicate in English.
