Dr. Mishra received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. After obtaining his doctorate, he moved to the USA and did his postdoctoral training in the Division of Biology, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS; Division of Allergy and Immunology, Department of Pediatrics, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO; and Division of Rheumatology, Department of Pediatrics at Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI. Before moving to Alabama State University in early 2009, Dr. Mishra continued at the Medical College of Wisconsin as a Research Scientist in the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology within the Department of Pediatrics. Dr. Mishra also holds a secondary appointment at the Division of Molecular and Cellular Pathology within the Department of Pathology, School of Medicine at the University of Alabama Birmingham, Birmingham, AL. Dr. Mishra serves on several NIH study sections and the editorial board of scientific peer-reviewed journals. Research and educational grants from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation support Dr. Mishra's lab. Dr. Mishra has several awards and recognition for his teaching and research. In 2015, he received the Faculty of the Year award at Alabama State University. In 2013, he was selected as one of the top 25 professors among mid-sized universities in the USA. He was a faculty scholar in cancer research at the American Association of Cancer Research in 2013, 2014, and 2016. In 2022, Dr. Mishra received outstanding achievement awards from the Society of American Asian Scientists in Cancer Research (SAASCR). Dr. Mishra is the founding director of the Cancer Biology Research and Training program; and the founding director of the Freshmen Biology program at Alabama State University. Dr. Mishra's education interest revolves around training, mentoring, and providing opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students, mainly from underrepresented populations. His research interest focuses on broader areas of immunology, tumor biology, and health disparity, using prostate cancer as a model system. Dr. Mishra's lab currently investigates the roles of dietary compounds, microbial metabolites, and immune cells, especially regulatory T and NK cells, in prostate cancer development and progression.

Research Interests

Role of immune cells in prostate cancer: Prostate Cancer (PCa) is the most common non-skin malignancy and commonly diagnosed cancer and the second most cancer responsible for death in men in the United States. Prior studies in animal models of PCa and in humans demonstrated that the prostate produces several growth factors. Adding or blocking these growth factors can alter PCa cell proliferation and other important functions. Among these growth factors, transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β) plays a significant role in tumorigenicity, displays potent immunosuppressive activities, and is required to convert conventional CD4+ T cells to FoxP3+ regulatory T cells (TR). TR that expresses the transcription factor Foxp3 is essential for normal immune function. The absence of TR cells results in multi-organ autoimmunity and death. A clear role of TGF-β and its effect on TR during PCa lacks experimental evidence. In this project, we investigate the underlying mechanisms involved in the context of TGF-β and/or TR using PCa cell lines derived from the transgenic mouse for prostate cancer (TRAMP) in C57/B6 mice. These cell lines, TRAMP-C1 and TRAMP-C2, form tumors, while TRAMP-C3 fails to form tumors. The objective of this project is to define the role of TGF-β production by host cells in response to or TGF-β expression by TRAMP cell lines and to analyze the role of TGF-β in the conversion of naïve CD4+ T cells to Foxp3 expressing TR cells. 

Role of dietary compounds in controlling prostate cancer development and progression: Our current research interest is understanding the molecular mechanism(s) involved in prostate cancer development and clearance in response to a dietary compound, resveratrol (RES). Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in the skin of red fruits and exhibits anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, anti-cancer, and anti-proliferative characteristics. RES was first detected in the dried roots of Polygonum cuspidatum, traditionally used in Chinese and Japanese medicines as an anti-inflammatory agent. This project explores the role of RES on NK cells and macrophages, particularly the tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) and regulatory T cells in the tumor microenvironment.


Current Lab members

Ritish Shyanti, Ph.D., Research Scientist

ritisDr. Ritis Shyanti is working as a Research Scientist in the Cancer Biology Research and Training Program (CBRT), Biological Sciences at Alabama State University (ALASU). His research is focused on basic biomedical science in cancer biology and training students in biomedical techniques. He has a broad background in cancer biology research and drug screening on different cancer models (in vitro and in vivo).

Project Title: NKT (Natural Killer T) cells dependent and independent CD1d interaction and its impact on breast cancer.

Dr. Shyanti was recently awarded the Clinical Scientist Developmental Grant funded by the American Cancer Society. The project is focused on "Exploring CD1d's Function in Regulating Breast Cancer Pathophysiology," which can significantly enhance our comprehension of breast cancer metastasis and resistance to therapy. The study concentrates on the role of CD1d in disease progression through the direct or indirect modulation of Natural Killer T cells and identifying CD1d's potential in both detection and therapeutics. Besides this, he is working on cancer stem cells, metastasis, and drug resistance associated with prostate, colon, and breast cancers. Further, his idea is to explore the targeted therapy that can be achieved by using phytochemicals and drugs that selectively target cancer, and cancer stem cells and improve tumor immunity.
