We study the molecular and cellular nature of a normal and cancer “stem cell niche” including the process of epithelial-mesenchymal transition; under physiological conditions in response to “loss or gain of function”, for some of the key regulators e.g. FBXW7 (Fbw7, hCDC4), ß-Catenin/TCF4, NANOG and their molecular partners. We are modelling the tumour microenvironment and generating intestinal tissue-specific gene-targeted murine models for functional genomics analysis, protein-protein interaction, epigenetic, transcriptome and proteome screening assays for mechanistic analysis and how cancer develops in the intestine and bowel. Our research should lead to new ways to tackle intestinal/colorectal cancer, new ways to treat or even prevent the disease in the future one of the word-wild most common cancers. Our research grants are supported by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and Cancer Research UK (CR-UK).

Dr. Paras Kumar Mishra did BSc and MS in Biological science with specialization in Zoology from India. His Ph.D. dissertation was from Banaras Hindu University (a reputed university in India) on understanding the genetic basis of speciation. His  postdoctoral works was basically on cardiac physiology from USA. As a faculty, the major focus of our research is to understand how heart undergoes structural and functional remodeling especially in diabetes, how it is regulated by specific microRNA (miR). He was also interested in investigating the role of extracellular matrix (ECM) and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) in heart failure. Their recent results revealed that MMP9 and miR-133 plays pivotal role in diabetic cardiomyopathy. Since, the role of ECM stiffness is unequivocal in stem cell apoptosis, we are interested to investigate the mechanism of ECM mediated cardiac progenitor cell apoptosis / impairment of differentiation in diabetes. The long term goal of research is to discover an intervention tool to improve cardiac function in pathological heart using microRNAs and stem cells.

 Biography
Research Interest :

Dr. Paras Kumar Mishra  research interest include MicroRNomics of cardiovascular diseases and diabetic cardiomyopathy: The structural and functional remodeling in heart is regulated by microRNAs (miRNAs) - tiny, conserved, non-coding regulatory RNAs that have been recently emerged as biomarkers and therapeutic targets for cardiovascular and several other diseases. My research work focuses on finding the candidate miRNAs involved in heart failure especially diabetic cardiomyopathy and using them for ameliorating the pathological conditions.  Additionally, I am also investigating the key factors associated with heart failure such as elevation in homocysteine level, degradation of extracellular matrix, decrease in tissue inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinases (TIMPs), impairment of sympathetic tone and contractile function of cardiomyocytes using in vivo, ex- vivo and in vitro approaches.

Their current studies focus on (i) the mechanism for RNA-based redox metal binding; (ii) the consequences of RNA oxidation on protein synthesis rate and fidelity; (iii) the role of redox active metals in mediating prooxidant and antioxidant properties; (iv) the signal transduction pathways altered in Alzheimer disease that allow neurons to evade apoptosis; and (v) mechanism of phosphorylation control of oxidative damage to neurofilament proteins.
