Graduate Student of the Month for July

Shripa works in the lab of Dr. Diana Cruz-Topete in the Department of Molecular & Cellular Physiology.  Her dissertation project is titled, “A Dual Role of Glucocorticoid Signaling in Modulating Inflammation in Adipose Tissue”.  Shripa’s research focuses on understanding the mechanism by which stress hormones (glucocorticoids) influence pro-inflammatory gene expression in adipocytes, with hopes to determine if modulation of this process can be targeted to control adipose tissue inflammation.
