Current R&D/S&T Activities

Presently, my research work embodies the assessment and elucidation of biochemical and molecular mechanism of toxicity of commonly encountered natural food contaminants, mycotoxins. In addition, our research work is focused on discovering and evaluating anticancer activities of small molecules (phytochemicals) and providing a scientific basis (mechanisms) for their effectiveness in controlling carcinogenesis. Of specific importance is the understanding of mechanisms at all levels viz., molecular, cellular and organ levels in both in vitro as well as in vivo systems by using latest techniques. The goal is to develop mechanism-based non-toxic anticancer agents for their potential use in cancer chemoprevention and treatment.
