Research Description
Systems Biology of Vector Borne Disease Transmission Dynamics: Multi-OMICS approaches to dissecting fundamental host-pathogen interactions. Discovery of novel interventions in the fight against malaria requires a pioneering approach to examine cell-cell interactions among the transmission stages of the parasite (i.e., sporozoite and ookinete) and their respective mammalian or mosquito host cells.

Research Description
Dr. Lele’s research is in the area of mechanobiology. We are interested in the mechanisms by which mechanical stresses on the nucleus impact gene expression in health and disease. The lab combines cutting edge microscope techniques, biophysical assays, genomics and molecular biology approaches to address hypotheses. Current collaborations are with Jonathan Licht (Director of Cancer Center), Jeffrey Nickerson (Anatomy and Cell Biology, U Mass medical school), Kyle Roux (Sanford Research), Richard Dickinson (UF Che) and Gregg Gundersen (Cell Biology, Columbia University). The lab has NIH-funded openings for PhD students.

Research Description
We study microsatellite repeat expansion diseases, including myotonic dystrophy. We use molecular, cellular, computational, and animal-based approaches to understand basic mechanisms that cause symptoms in this and related multi-systemic diseases, as well as identify treatments that will help patients. We also study RNA localization at a basic level, to understand why and how RNA molecules move to different places in the cell. We seek to combine high-throughput genomics approaches with single molecule imaging approaches to characterize and understand this new frontier in biology.

Research Description
We are studying cancer cell signaling with expertise in signal transduction, genetic and epigenetic regulation, and animal models. Our current laboratory research is centered on two families of transcriptional co-activators, MAML and CRTC, which are essential components of Notch receptor signaling and LKB1-CRTC/CREB signaling pathways, respectively. We are investigating the molecular regulation and the roles of deregulated cell signaling in cancer generation and progression, with the goal of gaining molecular insights into cancer pathogenesis and identifying novel cancer diagnostic and therapeutic targets.
