The central focus of Dr. Pugazhenthi's research is molecular mechanism of cell death. Common pathological mechanisms are being studied in two disease models, namely, loss of insulin-producing beta cells in diabetes and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s brain. Transcriptional regulation of cytoprotective genes are examined in cultured human islets and in human neural stem-derived neurons. The long-term goal is to enhance cell survival through modulation of transcription factors under conditions of oxidative stress and inflammation.
