Research Interest: A major goal of Mukhopadhyay’s research is to understand how gene-environment interactions alter neuronal physiology to induce parkinsonian disorders.
Current focus: 1. Trafficking in metal homeostasis and induced neurotoxicity; 2. Mechanisms mediating intracellular transport of Shiga and other bacterial toxins.
Funding: 1. NIH/NIEHS K99/R00; 2. NIH/NIEHS R01.
Graduate program affiliations: 1. Pharmaceutical Sciences (Division of Pharmacology and Toxicology); 2. Cell and Molecular Biology (Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology); 3. Biochemistry (Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology); 4. Neuroscience (Institute for Neuroscience).
