Krishna, a graduate of UCSD’s Jacobs School of Engineering, is the resident gourmand of the Insel lab. At the bench, his research is focused on the role of GPCRs in heart disease, primarily in cardiac fibrosis, with secondary research interests in pulmonary disease, including pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary arterial hypertension. With his Insel lab colleagues (in particular Alexander), Krishna aims to leverage a number of diverse tools to profile GPCRs in fibroblasts and various other cell types, following such efforts with functional studies to assess their role in disease.
