Modulating the expression of topo2b to enhance the viability of CGNs through genome editing 2018 3 59.2 Dr. Pankaj Singh Dholaniya

My research group is interested in investigating the mechanism and the molecular markers for neuronal senescence and age-associated neurodegenerative diseases. Currently, we are working towards the computational modeling of Parkinson’s disease from an integrated analysis of the GWAS, gene expression, proteome, and pathway data to explain the disease and non-disease states in term of the gene/protein interaction networks. We are also working on the characterization of the role of Topoisomerase 2 beta (Top2b) and its associated genes in neuronal senescence by modulating the expression of Top2b enzyme through genome editing techniques.
