About Dr. G. Aditya Kumar
Dr. Aditya Kumar is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan Medical School. Aditya is interested in understanding the role of the membrane microenvironment in the subcellular organization, trafficking, and signaling of GPCRs. He received his Ph.D. from the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology at Hyderabad, India, where he studied the interaction of membrane cholesterol with the serotonin-1A receptor and its effects on receptor signaling and endocytosis. In addition, he explored the role of the host membrane in the entry of intracellular pathogens into macrophages.
He currently uses high-resolution fluorescence microscopy and biochemistry to study GPCR trafficking mechanisms. In his (future) independent research career, Aditya aims to work at the interface of GPCR molecular pharmacology, subcellular trafficking, and membrane biology to better understand how the dynamic receptor microenvironment contributes to GPCR organization and function.
