Dr. Debomoy K. Lahiri in the Department of Psychiatry and of Medical & Molecular Genetics and full member of the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute at the Indiana University (IU) School of Medicine, Indianapolis, USA. Currently, he is Chief of the Laboratory of Molecular Neurogenetics at the Institute of Psychiatric Research of IU School of Medicine. Prior to joining Indiana University, Dr. Lahiri was a faculty member at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY. His particular research interest is to understand the mechanism of aging; origin and biogenesis of the amyloid plaque and gene regulation of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Dr. Lahiri has been working in the neurobiology and genetics of AD and molecular biology of β-amyloid precursor protein (APP), synaptic proteins and other AD-related genes for over 20 years. He is also studying the novel role of microRNAs (miRNA) in brain disorders, such as AD.  Further,  Dr.  Lahiri’s group has recently shown beneficial effects of dietary nutrients, such as aged garlic extract (AGE), S-Ally cysteine (SAC), and nanocurmin in neuropreservation and neuroprotec-tion, which have far reaching implications in man’s health and longevity. Dr. Lahiri has been awarded multiple research grants as a Principal Investigator from the National Institute on Aging, NIH, and Alzheimer's Association. Dr. Lahiri is a member of the NIH study section, of the Scientific Advisory Board for the Institute for the Study of Aging, New York, for QR Pharma, Philadelphia and for Yuma Therapeutics, Boston. He has published over 250 scientific papers in the field of neurobiology, genetics and AD (including high impact factor journals, such as JBC, PNAS, FASEB J, JPET, Neuron, and Nature Neurosci Rev and Science). Dr. Lahiri is the Editor-In-Chief of the international journal, ‘Current Alzheimer Research', which is listed in MEDLINE/PubMed (www.benthamscience.com/car). He has also coauthored books, such as ‘Protective Strategies for Neurodegenerative Diseases' published by the New York Academy of Sciences. Dr. Lahiri's honors include the listing in Marquis' ‘Who's Who in the World', and receiving the prestigious ‘Zenith Award' from Alzheimer's Association.
