Biography:

  • Dr. Konkalmatt is a molecular physiologist with molecular biology background and special expertise in the development and use of adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors for in vivo gene delivery.
  • Dr. Konkalmatt’s research interest deals with the molecular mechanisms by which dopamine receptors and GPR37L1 regulate renal function, blood pressure, and AAV vectors for renal-specific gene delivery and renal-segment specific gene expression and silencing.
  • He also developed therapeutic applications of AAV-mediated cardiac-specific gene expression in a mouse model of cardiac ischemia and reperfusion injury, and hind-limb ischemia.
  • He has a U.S. patent on the use of AAV vectors for gene delivery.
  • He has 30 articles listed in PubMed. One of his publications is the cover of a scientific journal, and another is the subject of an editorial commentary.
