Assistant Professor of Cardiovascular Sciences at Houston Methodist Research Institute and Assistant Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University. Dr. Prasanna earned his BVSc (DVM) degree with honors from Bangalore Veterinary College, India and his Masters and PhD in Veterinary Pathology from Indian Veterinary Research Institute (India's premier institute for Veterinary Research). He completed his postdoctoral training at Feinberg Cardiovascular Research Institute. Before joining Houston Methodist Research Institute, he served as Assistant Professor at Northwestern University.
The overall research theme of the Prasanna Laboratory is to understand the mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases that will aid in developing innovative new therapies and translate that information to the clinics to treat heart disease and improve lives of patients. The Prasanna Laboratory in Department of Cardiovascular Sciences and Center for Cardiovascular Regeneration at the Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI) is located on Texas Medical Center Campus.
Dr. Can Küçük currently works at Dokuz Eylul University İzmir International Biomedicine and Genome Institute (iBG-izmir) in Turkey as an Assistant Professor and independent PI with his own research group. He has authored research articles in highly respected international journals such as Nature Communications, PNAS, Blood, Leukemia and Clinical Cancer Research.
Dr. Küçük graduated from the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Middle East Technical University (METU) in 2005. He got his Ph.D degree in Cancer Biology and Oncology from Eppley Institute for Research in Cancer and Allied Diseases at University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in 2012. He worked as a post-doc in the Department of Pathology at UNMC and then at City of Hope Medical Center.
He investigates the etiology of lymphoid malignancies using personalized medicine approach. In particular, whole-exome sequencing or whole transcriptome sequencing are applied on tumor samples to identify aberrant genes or pathways leading to development of these neoplasms. His group aims to:
1) identify novel recurrent aberrations that can be targeted by rational drugs.
2) develop companion diagnostics methodologies for personalized medicine
3) identify novel biomarkers of diagnosis, prognosis or disease management.
The other areas of research interest in Dr. Küçük lab can be described as follows:
a) Rare diseases
1997: PhD Cancer Research Centre of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Moscow.
1997-2001: Postdoc at the University of Regensburg
2001-2007: Junior group leader/PI and lecturer, University of Heidelberg.
2007- 2010:Senior group leader/PI and senior lecturer, University of Heidelberg
2010-2013: Professor, head of the Lab for Cellular and Molecular Biology of Innate Immunity;
2013-permanent: Professor, head of Department for Innate Immunity and Tolerance, University of Heidelberg.
