Sudhir Kshirsagar, PhD
Hello all, I am a pharmacy graduate from the University of Pune, India. I have completed
my Master of Science in Molecular biology from University of Skövde, Sweden. I received
my Ph.D. degree from the Medical University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria. My Ph.D.
work was on “T cell signal transduction: Molecular mechanism of lupus nephritis in
childhood. In this study, we conclude that hyperactivation of the Akt pathway in Teff
cells from children with lupus nephritis is associated with reduced induction of TRAF6
and up-regulation of OX40, which may cause Teff cell resistance to Treg cell-mediated
suppression. After finishing my Ph.D, I have worked at Tyrolean Cancer Research Institute,
Innsbruck, Austria. Later, I moved to the USA in 2018 and joined Dr. Hiranmoy Das
lab at TTUHSC, Amarillo where I mostly worked on Arthritis related research. Recently
I have joined Dr. Reddy’s lab and going to work on neurodegenerative diseases.
