Shalinee's research expertise is in the field of Diabetes with interests in understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the cytoprotective effects of unsaturated fatty acids on pancreatic beta cells. Her research interests also expanded in understanding the aetiology of Type 1 diabetes focusing on role of enteroviral infections in development of Type 1 diabetes.
Research Projects undertaken
- Investigating expression of phosphorylated form of microtubule associated protein Tau in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes cases.
- Investigating role of transcription factor STAT1 and STAT2 in the development of Type 1 Diabetes.
- Investigating role of enteroviruses in the progression of type 1 diabetes using patient pancreas samples. Primarily focusing on the detection of enteroviruses within the islets and understanding the molecular signalling associated with viral infection.
- Investigating the molecular mechanisms involved in the effcts of fatty acids, primarily focussing on the cytoprotective effects of long chain unsaturated fatty acids in pancreatic beta cells.
