Research Orientations

  • Regulation of cellular redox state and biology of nitric oxide with particular reference to inflammation
  • Angiognesis (regulation of endothelial tube formation by angiopoietins and VEGF)
  • Cellular Apoptosis (regulation of various apoptotic pathways by angiogenesis factors)
  • Ventilatory muscle function and regulation of their blood flow
