WHAT WE DO

Research in the Dutta laboratory is focused on understanding the mechanistic basis of cellular response to oxidative stress in both normal and diseased states, and the role of the microbiome in this process. In particular, the laboratory studies mitochondria-mediated mechanisms involved in the development and maintenance of reproductive organ systems. The laboratory utilizes state-of-the-art transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic approaches to interrogate chicken models, mouse models, and human samples. The work aims to improve reproductive efficiency in chickens to enhance farm productivity; and identify and define drivers of prostate and ovarian cancer in the human context.
