Melanin is a pigment found in most living organisms and is produced by a process called melanogenesis. This pigment is produced in specialized groups of cells called melanocytes and their function is to protect us against UV radiation. But did you know that melanoma caused by melanocyte mutations accounts for about 9000 deaths a year in the United States alone? To investigate this topic further, Gautam Chauhan, a Research Fellow at Pine Biotech performed a research project that aims to evaluate the risk of signature genes with the potential of developing melanoma by comparing two dark-skin samples with two light-skin.

Have you ever wondered why astronauts float in their spacecraft or outside, during a spacewalk? The reason behind this is due to microgravity. Microgravity is a phenomenon where the gravity seems very small causing the people and objects to appear weightless. The human body undergoes dramatic changes during a long-term space flight. To further understand these changes, a group research project was carried out by two of our Research Fellows at Pine Biotech - Shubham Kumar and Ojasvi Dutta on the effects of microgravity on Human-induced Pluripotent Stem Cells and to understand the change in the activity of cardiac and muscle cells.

Ototoxicity refers to the condition of ear poisoning that results from exposure to drugs and chemicals that damage the internal ear or hear-able nerve leading to the impairment of hearing and balance. Serious dosing of Cisplatin, a platinum-based drug used in chemotherapy in the treatment of malignant tumors has been known to cause ototoxicity. Mrinal Bamhotra and Yachita Gupta, two of our Research Fellows at Pine Biotech performed a research project that aims to identify the genes and pathways related to the side effects of Cisplatin using the gene expression data from lung cancer which was also used to verify if the ill effects of Cisplatin are generic or specific to cochlear cells.
