Indra Mani currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Physiology, Tulane Health Sciences Center School of Medicine, New Orleans, LA, USA. His current research projects are to identify the molecular and cellular action of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) hormone that regulates sodium excretion, fluid volume, and vasorelaxation, important factors in the control of blood pressure and blood volume. His further interests are the creation of gene regulatory networks for better understanding of molecular, cellular mechanism and also designing and redesigning of biosynthetic pathways for production value-added products. He received his Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry (2010) from Banars Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi, India. He pursued his career in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry as a SRF from National Bureau of Fish Genetic resources, Lucknow, India. His research interests include the development of molecular markers for identification and comparative genomics of fishes. He has 6 book chapters, and 26 research articles. He serves as a reviewer of journals and also a member of international societies.
Research interests include Cell signaling, Synthetic biology.
