Current Research

  • Proteomic analysis of molecular signalling pathways involved in the protection of the myocardium from ischemic-reperfusion injury by postconditioning in an in vitro model

Past Research

  • Studying the roles of a novel protein, Aph2, in DNA damage signalling pathways
  • Roles of saturated fatty acids in DNA damage signalling pathways

Academic Interest

  • Molecular and Cell Biology:     
  • Understanding and elucidating protein signalling pathways which are important for the proper development of an organism     
  • Identifying cellular survival cascades that are activated by respective treatments to protect the cell from further injuries which lead to cell death     
  • DNA damage signaling cascade and DNA repair mechanisms     
  • Autophagic progresses of the cell     
  • Functions of miRNA in the proper development of an organism
