Dr. Oswal research interests are focused on the underlying mechanisms involved in TB reactivation in patients with metabolic diseases. Currently, she is investigating the role of adipocytes derived factors in the pathogenesis of pulmonary TB infection in a murine TB model. She is also exploring various techniques to efficiently isolate adipomes in the blood samples of TB patients (with and without metabolic syndromes) to identify therapeutic targets.
Two Postdoctoral Fellow and research technician positions are available in our laboratory. Applicants interested in adipocyte pathophysiology, breast cancer and metabolic syndrome research are invited to apply via email directly to Jyothi Nagajyothi.
