Hariom Yadav, PhD
Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Diseases Group
Yadav’s group is focusing on research projects related to ‘The role of gut microbiome and its modulators on obesity, diabetes and aging. Our recent studies found that gut microbiome and its metabolites impact gut health specifically enteric nervous system. Currently, his group is interested in how gut microbiome uses diverse machineries of metabolic set-up that confer unlike properties on the host metabolism – for instance energy intake and energy expenditure. In addition, Yadav’s group is developing human-origin and safe probiotics with the potential to manipulate microbiome, and provide health benefits to the consumers. Recently, his group has been screening probiotics to promote beneficial metabolites like short chain fatty acids and nitric oxide synthesis. His laboratory uses modern technologies i.e. metagenomics analyses, bioinformatics pipelines, cell culture systems, microbiological systems, transgenic and germ-free mice models with gut flora transplantation and metabolic phenotyping to address our hypotheses.

Dr. Ravinder Nagpal, PhD
Dr. Ravinder Nagpal, PhD., is Assistant Professor of Microbiology, and teaches microbiology, immunology and food biotechnology. He received his Masters’ in Microbiology from Bundelkhand University, Jhansi, India, in 2004, and was awarded Senior Research Fellowship from Indian Council of Agriculture Research to carry out his doctorate research in Dairy Microbiology at National Dairy Research Institute, India, from 2004 to 2008. He executed a four-year postdoctoral training at Probiotics Research Laboratory, Juntendo University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan where he studied the ontogenesis of early-life gut microbiome and factors affecting this pioneering microbiota spectrum. At present, he is employed as research fellow at Wake Forest School of Medicine, NC, USA, where he is investigating the role of gut microbiome in type 2 diabetes, obesity and metabolic diseases. As a researcher, he has published more than 50 papers in his areas of research i.e. gut microbiome, probiotics, prebiotics, and rumen, food & dairy microbiology in internationally recognized journals, besides editing one book on beneficial microbes and contributing numerous book chapters, popular articles and online lectures. He has received awards from several esteemed societies for his presentations at various international scientific events. He is also acting as Editorial Board Member and Peer-Reviewer for several journals of national and international status. Dr. Nagpal is actively affiliated with a number of microbiology clubs viz. European Societies for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, DOHaD-Japan, International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics, Japanese Association of Infectious Diseases, New York Academy of Sciences, Association of Microbiologists of India, and Alliances of Indian Micro-biotechnologists, and has presented his work at various international conferences in India, Japan, Singapore, Prague, Greece, and USA.
My interests focus on pursuing a mechanistic understanding of disease processes and developing safe and effective prevention and treatment methods. To this end, I have been developing and applying systems approaches to integrate large-scale and multi-omic data and identify causal networks (Bayesian networks augmented by Mendelian randomization principles). Causal networks facilitate mechanistic understanding through identification of pathways, modules, potential roles of each component in the system, and more efficacious intervention targets.
