Anjana Saxena's research goal is to understand how cells perceive variety of stresses including DNA damage and trigger a cellular response. Specific focus is on how nucleolar stress factors regulate cellular fate (survival, cell death or senescence) during DNA damage response (DDR) where survival can lead to cancer phenotype. Few major research areas include understanding: 1) the role of RNA-binding proteins in regulating gene expression during DDR 2) how dietary methyl nutrients (e.g., dietary choline obtained from meat, eggs, milk) provide epigenetic regulations in obesity and gestational diabetes 3) how bacterial and fungal microbiomes affect cellular immunity that affect normal (e.g., inflammaging) or disease physiology (e.g., cancer and other metabolic disorders).Complete list of Publications in reverse chronological order:
