Dr. Ayswaria Deepti received her Doctoral degree in Biochemistry from the National University of Ireland-Galway (NUIG) for her thesis titled “Regulation of Endoplasmic reticulum stress by Heat shock proteins” working with Apoptosis Research Centre and Samali lab. Soon after her Ph.D., she joined Gupta Lab: School of Medicine - Department of Pathology, NUI – Galway, Ireland, to explore the role of microRNAs in ER stress-induced apoptosis. Subsequently, she joined Carmen Garrido Team (UMR 866, INSERM - France, "Lipides Nutrition Cancer", équipe "Protéines de Stress et Cancer). Her research objectives included the role of ER stress in progression of Graft Vs Host disease, role of GP96 in intestinal Graft Vs Host disease and also the role of ER stress in T-cell toxicity by toxins derived from gut microbiota. Currently, Dr. Deepti is a Research Associate with Dr. Chakrapani, Lab of Centre for Neuroscience. Her areas of research interest are multidimensional and she aims to incorporate her previous experiences to the general interest of the organization. Her current projects involve studying the role of neuronal stem cells in adult neurogenesis, regulation of gut microbiota in Autism spectrum disorders and the use of natural bioavailable molecules in the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
