The strength of any department lies in its’ members and their achievements and awards. Congratulations are extended to:
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted a patent to Dr. Suresh Mishra’s team in the Section of Endocrinology & Metabolism on novel “preclinical models for obesity and obesity-linked cancer (Mito-Ob)”. These preclinical models are developed using an innovative approach by simultaneously manipulating adipose and immune functions in the body. Consequently, they spontaneously develop obesity and obesity-linked cancer in a well-defined timely manner, and have created new research opportunities. Their various uses include: 1) Discovery and development of new therapeutic targets for obesity and obesity-linked cancer, 2) Various types of intervention studies and 3) Preclinical drug screening.
