Rare disorders can serve as useful models to understand the pathways of more common diseases. Ciliopathies are one of such rare disorders where disease phenotype arise from defects in the formation and/or function of cilia. I am fascinated by the importance of the small organelle for the survival of unicellular ciliates to the development of multicellular organisms. Except some differentiated cell types mostly all human cell types contain a primary cilium and as a researcher I find this field to have tremendous potential to investigate the role of cilia in the development and functioning of those cells.
My research interest lies in pancreatic β-cell development and regeneration, with specific focus on ciliopathy proteins and to expand my knowledge of cilia biology to problems in human disease namely diabetes, obesity, and cystic kidney.
