Satish is a Wellcome trust-DBT India alliance fellow and an assistant professor at IISER TVM. His lab is interested in understanding the regulatory mechanisms underlying hematopoietic stem cell (HSCs) function with major focus on:

  • How the HSC pool is created during development and what are the mechanisms involved in symmetrical divisions?
  • What are the extrinsic regulators that maintain the state of quiescence in adult HSCs?
  • Molecular events that regulate functional changes in HSCs during aging!
  • Bioenergetic profile of the HSC that leads to their differential function in different physiological states!
  • Outside-in integrin signaling in adult and fetal hematopoiesis
