Area of Specialization/Interest: 

Biochemistry, Immunology Phytotherapeutic approaches for Degenerative diseases

Current Areas of Research:

  • Phytotherapeutic approaches for selected degenerative diseases – Type 2 Diabetes mellitus, Cancer, and Parkinson’s Disease using small experimental animal models (in vivo) and in animal cell lines (in vitro).

  • Evaluation of biomedical applications of metal nanoparticles in in vitro and in vivo systems. In this approach, silver and gold nanoparticles are synthesized by green methods using plant extracts and testing the protective effects of these green synthesized  nanoparticles against  the pathogenic changes in cancer cell lines by in vitro cell culture methods animals models as well as in animal models in vivo.

  • Geomicrobiology – Identification and molecular characterization of soil bacteria isolated from Cauvery River delta shallow subsurface and from oil contaminated sites.
