About Dr. Sai Prasad Pydi

Dr. Sai Prasad Pydi obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Manitoba – Canada, where he was introduced to G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) by Prof. Prashen Chelikani. His doctoral research focused on the structural and functional characterization of bitter taste receptors (T2Rs). In 2014, Dr. Pydi joined Dr. Jurgen Wess’s lab at the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) - NIH, USA as a postdoctoral fellow and trained on understanding the physiological role of GPCR signaling and beta-arrestins in diabetes and obesity. In February 2021, Dr. Pydi joined BSBE department at IIT-Kanpur. The main target of Dr. Pydi's laboratory is to develop GPCR-based drugs for the treatment of obesity and Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) by exploring metabolically important signaling pathways in immune cells and insulin-sensitive tissues (liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, adipose tissue, and brain). His laboratory uses knock-out and transgenic mouse models, along with different cell culture systems, to understand the role of immune cell GPCRs and their cross-talk with other insulin-sensitive tissues regulating glucose and lipid metabolism.
