Our laboratory is part of the Department of Biological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Mohali. We are interested in understanding the molecules and signals underlying normal brain function. Many of the molecules and mechanisms required for the functioning of the nervous system are conserved between the free-living roundworm, Caenorhabditis elegans and higher organisms. We use C. elegans as the model organism to understand the molecular and cellular basis of normal brain function. 

The lab is currently staffed by a principal investigator, two post-doctoral fellows, six doctoral students, a final year BS/MS student and a lab technician. The laboratory is situated in the Academic Block of the IISER Mohali campus
