Sumeet Pandey, Postdoctoral Fellow 


Brief biography:

I received my PhD in Biochemistry working on the genetic engineering of a probiotic E. coli strain. During my PhD I received a grant to extended my studies from animal models to the human immune system in Holm Uhlig lab based at Oxford. In Oxford, initially I worked on the role of NADPH oxidase 1 in maintaining gut barrier function. My current interest is to investigate the role of anti-bacterial autophagy in the spectrum of monogenic forms of inflammatory bowel disease patient including XIAP, NOD2, CGD and NPC1. We employ small molecule inhibitors/activators and CRISPR technology to study differential autophagy pathway.

Research interests:

The role of enzymes that generate reactive oxygen species in maintaining gut barrier function

Current project(s):

Role of autophagy in monogenic forms of Inflammatory bowel disease.
