Shailendra is a postdoctoral research fellow specializing in understanding the role of RNA-binding proteins in various neurodegenerative diseases within the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He earned his undergraduate degree in Pharmacy from Tribhuvan University, Nepal, and subsequently completed a PhD at the University of Southern Mississippi before joining Harvard as a research fellow. During his doctoral studies, Shailendra investigated the heterotypic interaction between alpha-synuclein and TDP-43, crucially implicated in Parkinson's Disease and ALS/FTD, respectively. The research delved into unraveling the molecular mechanisms underlying the interplay between alpha-synucleinopathies and TDP-43 proteinopathies, employing comprehensive biophysical, biochemical, molecular biology, and immunohistological approaches.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
