Madhumita Basu, Ph.D.
Nationwide Children’s Hospital
Dr. Madhumita Basu is a principal investigator and research assistant professor in the Center for Cardiovascular Research at the Abigail Wexner Research Institute in Nationwide Children's Hospital and Department of Pediatrics within The Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus.
Dr. Basu was funded by The Children’s Heart Foundation in 2018 for her research on mechanisms of maternal hyperglycemia-induced risk of congenital heart disease. This study has evaluated the risk of pregnant women getting diabetes, or hyperglycemia, and its impact on having babies born with congenital heart defects. She continues her research in the Basu Lab at the Abigail Wexner Research Institute in Nationwide Children's Hospital and Department of Pediatrics within The Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus. The work in her lab is currently utilizing in vivo and in vitro transcriptomics, epigenomic, and metabolic approaches to examine the cell specific sensitivity towards high glucose levels. The overarching goal of the lab is to identify the impact of maternal hyperglycemia on spatiotemporal regulation of cardiac genes and signaling pathways in the developing fetus and design strategies to prevent maternal diabetes mediated embryopathies.
