More Information
Dr Ganesan’s research work focuses: 1) understanding how melanocytes respond to environmental cues (UV irradiation, inflammation) in order to maintain normal homeostasis; and 2) determining how this homeostasis is disrupted in disease (melanoma, vitiligo). His research utilizes a combination of advanced functional genomic technology (si/shRNA, CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Engineering, bulk and single cell RNA sequencing, DNA sequencing), cell biology methods, and rational drug design strategies to develop novel diagnostics and treatments for disease. Most work in his lab employs a combination of human derived cell lines/ strains, transgenic mouse models, and human tissues.
