Dr Martins research with relevance to diet, diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases builds upon his past > 150 publications that generates outputs that will have relevant and significant impact to the global community. The incidence of diabetes and non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has been predicted to increase to 21% by 2050. Novel and critical elements of scholarly peer review provides information that the heat shock gene Sirtuin 1 is repressed with relevance to diabetes, neurological diseases and Alzheimer's disease. Major unsolved challenges to advances in biology may now provide evidence to reverse Sirtuin 1 dysfunction that is connected to primarily to heat shock protein metabolism and secondly to toxic amyloid beta metabolism with mitochondrial apoptosis in liver and brain cells. In the developing world increased levels of bacterial lipopolysaccharides repress the anti-aging gene Sirtuin 1 with the development of diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases and Alzheimer’s disease. Unhealthy diets accelerate Type 3 diabetes with the induction of NAFLD in Global Populations

Biography :

Dr. Rajendra D. Badgaiyan, MD, is a psychiatrist and cognitive neuroscientist. He is Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Richmond University Medical Center, and Professor of Psychiatry at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. He received formal training in psychiatry, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, molecular imaging and neuroimaging. He was awarded the prestigious BK Anand National Research Prize in India and Solomon Award of Harvard Medical School. His research is focused on the study of neural and neurochemical mechanisms that control human brain functions. He developed the single scan dynamic molecular imaging technique (SDMIT) to detect, map, and measure neurotransmitters released acutely in the human brain during task performance. This technique is now used in laboratories all over the world. Using this technique, he studies dopaminergic control of human cognition and behavior. He is also interested in learning the nature of dysregulated dopamine neurotransmission in psychiatric and neuropsychiatric conditions. His research is funded by NIMH, NINDS, VA, and various foundations. Previously he served in the faculty of Harvard Medical School, SUNY Buffalo and University of Minnesota. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals.

Research Interest :

The research we do is both clinical and fundamental. We focus on many aspects, including the well-being of people. Thus we work on the problem of sleep from two different angles. On the one hand, apneas that are partly due to an anomaly of the oro-facial sphere and a neurological problem. We are funding a job to create a new measuring device that can be used on an outpatient basis to prevent hospitalization. On the other hand, the fragmentation of sleep, which is found in all the intellectual and pathological deficiencies of neuronal aging (Alzheimer, Parkinson for example). Eye problems are also an important research topic because trisomy 21 very often causes vision problems, which are very little taken care of. As we age, early cataracts or other ocular diseases such as glaucoma, keratocones develop. Another meaning, impacted: hearing. People with trisomy 21 have often made otitis recurring when they were children, sometimes giving them a partial deafness which requires that they can be paired and receive medical attention. Studies are also done in dermatology because they have very dry skin. Dentition is a field of research still little explored that will have to be taken into consideration. There is also a tendency to obesity. Nutrition programs exist but these must be accompanied by a sport. Life expectancy has increased significantly (about 65-70 years) because contrary to popular belief, We are also interested in the place of people with trisomy 21 in our society. It goes through school integration by allowing them to go to school. The big victory is the establishment of help with school life for children with trisomy 21 initiated by a small association "Growing up at school" and taken over by Trsiomie 21 France, which now also benefits children with an autistic syndrome . Another societal issue is the management of sexuality and contraception. This subject is still taboo and we are very late in France on this issue.
