Dr. Mayank Choubey, is currently pursuing postdoctoral studies at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, United States where he is gaining expertise on the role of high fat diet-induced obesity on the endothelial cell dysfunctions utilizing various knockout mice. Dr. Choubey had recently been selected for “Scientist B” position at National Institute of Animal Biotechnology, Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, Hyderabad. Also, he has been awarded with prestigious Postdoctoral training scholarship by Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé (FRQS 2021-2022) to work at McGill University, Canada. Dr. Choubey, has completed his PhD degree in Biotechnology in 2019 from Department of Zoology, Institute of Science, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. During the Ph.D. tenure he managed to published few high impact research and review articles in internationally recognized journals (BBA Molecular Basis of Disease, Biochimie, Vitamins and Hormones, General and Comparative Endocrinology, Reproductive Sciences) and he attended different International conferences and receives Prof. N. J. Chinoy best poster presentation award in the International Symposium conducted by the Society for Reproductive Biology and Comparative Endocrinology (SRBCE) in 2016. His best article entitled “Role of adiponectin as a modulator of testicular function during aging in mice” published in “BBA – Molecular Basis of Disease” has been selected to be featured article in the new BBA Collection “Reproduction, Parental Health and the Offspring” in 2019. He was awarded Senior Research Fellowship in 2018 by ICMR, Government of India, to carry out an individual research project entitled “Adiponectin: connecting link between aging, metabolic disorder, and male reproduction” in the laboratory of Prof. Amitabh Krishna, Department of Zoology, Banaras Hindu University, India. He has obtained his Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech. Biotechnology) degree from Jaypee Institute of Information Technology University, India in 2008 and received his Master of Technology (M.Tech. Biotechnology) degree from Integral University, India in 2011.
Dr. Choubey, research interest focuses on genomics and proteomics approaches to study the role of various cellular signaling pathways during aging, metabolic disorders (obesity, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes), male and female infertility, and cancers-associated diseases. He also has special interest in the improvement and treatment of animal fertility and diseases utilizing different molecular biology tools and animal transgenesis procedures.
