The Bhattacharya lab is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms by which G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) regulate metabolic disorders such as cancer (breast and liver cancer) and obesity induced fatty liver disease. These metabolic adaptions are unique to diseased cells and represent promising drug targets. These multidisciplinary studies are conducted using cell and 3-D culture models, genetically engineered mouse models as well as clinical biopsies and blood samples.
