Welcome to my website. Here you will find information of my research, teaching, My role in Academy-academy interactions, Academy-Industry interactions, industry-industry interactions.
Dr. C B Sanjeevi heads the research group, Diabetes-Immunology (which was formerly referred to as Molecular Immunogenetics group). The group focuses its research on Autoimmune diabetes, which include Type 1 Diabetes, LADA and other forms of Diabetes with autoimmune basis, eg: Malnutrition Modulated Diabetes Mellitus. Autoimmune Diabetes has a strong genetic basis (its incidence in Sweden is one of the highest in the world). My group’s main interest lies in the understanding of the bio markers, immunogenetic factors, especially its structural and functional aspects of these genes, in the understanding of the etiology of the disease and finding ways to predict the disease and possibly to prevent the disease.
Dr. Sanjeevi is running a Type 1 Diabetes network in India. The activity is coordinated by the Cuttack Diabetes Research Foundation in Cuttack, Odisha. We have held diabetes symposia with faculty from Karolinska Institute in 2006 focussing on Current problems in Diabetes.
More such meetings had taken place and one was with Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Center on Genomics and Proteomics of Diabetes in association with Dept of Biotechnology with faculty from Karolinska Institute.
We received a grant from the Swedish Research Links programme (funded by Sida and the Swedish Research Council) for a research project titled ”Genetic and immunological aspects of diabetes development and the mechanism of protection in young-onset diabetes and malnutrition modulated diabetes in India”. The project was be carried out in collaboration with Dr. Alok Kanungo at Cuttack Diabetes Research Foundation.
Dr. Sanjeevi has served as a member of the Editorial board of HUMAN IMMUNOLOGY, member of the International Advisory Board of the Journal of Association of Physicians of India (JAPI) from January 2005, Associate editor for DIABETOLOGIA (published by EASD), member of the Editorial Board of 'Current Diabetes Reviews' from USA and Editor for the 'IMMUNOLOGY OF DIABETES' series published by the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences (USA). Five volumes had been published and the links to these volumes are given below.
