Biplab Dasgupta, PhD, a member of the Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics Program at the OSUCCC – James, is based at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.His research seeks to learn how neural cell/stem-cell metabolic and energy status is linked to cell cycle, lineage commitment, differentiation and tumorigenesis. He also is interested in genetic, developmental, post-translational, tissue- and stimuli-specific regulation of AMP kinase complex subunits. One of his recent studies indicates that disrupting lipid metabolism could be a strategy for developing therapeutics for malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNST). Dr. Dasgupta has co-authored numerous articles in well-respected publications such as Trends in Pharmacological Sciences, Neuro-Oncology, The Journal of Neuroscience and Molecular Cancer Therapeutics.
