Dr. Sathisha Upparahalli Venkateshaiah received Ph.D. from University of Mysore, INDIA, where he studied modulation of galectin-3 (glycoprotein) by a dietary galectin inhibitor, pectin-a polysaccharide in metastatic cancer. Later, Dr. Sathisha, joined in the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, AR as a Postdoctoral research fellow under the mentorship of Dr. Shmuel Yaccoby, where he explored the role of bone marrow microenvironment in Myeloma tumorigenesis. Further, Dr. Sathisha joined in Tulane Eosinophilic Disorder Center, Section of Pulmonary Diseases, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA, where he trained under Dr. Anil Mishra, studying on pathogenic role of immune cells in allergic Disease, such as asthma and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and also on patient’s oriented translational immunological research studies. He explored the role inflammatory cells like eosinophils and mast cells in allergic diseases. His novel findings involve critical role for IL-18 in transformation and maturation of naive eosinophils to pathogenic immune cells including mast cells and eosinophils from bone marrow precursors and also he identified IL-15, as a novel treatment strategy for pulmonary airway hyperactivity and fibrosis.
