Research Interests:

The Chandrasekar lab's research interest is to understand the role of cytoskeletal proteins in cell and organ function. The Chandrasekar research laboratory is trying to answer some fundamental questions in cellular trafficking pathways and extend those findings to organ function and human diseases. The primary focus of the cell-organ function relationships is aimed at the disorders of kidney and the brain. Our research will look to uncover some novel cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in chronic kidney diseases and neurodegenerative disorders that will facilitate development of future targeted therapies.
