Current R&D/S&T Activities

  • Proteomics Prospects in Evaluation of Toxic/Carcinogenic Potential of Pesticides.
  • Plasma Proteomics for Novel Biomarker Development Against Specific Cancer Types.
  • Evaluation and Intervention of Genotoxic Potential of Pesticides.Nutritional Genomics and Proteomics in Cancer Chemoprevention.Studies on Genotoxic Potential of Environmental Pollutants.

Summary of Research

  • Identified the genotoxic and carcinogenic risk associated with number of pesticides viz. Mancozeb, Carbaryl, Diuron Thiram, Propoxur, Deltamethrin, Cypermethrin etc using in vivo longterm bioassay and in vitro models and studied their mechanism of action.
  • Studied the cancer chemopreventive potential of phytochemicals namely, Diallyl sulfide, indole-3-Carbinol, resveratrol, Black and green tea polyphenols, Bromelain, Lupeol, etc.
  • Identification and validation of proteomics signatures of carcinogenic pesticides.
  • Plasma Proteomics of breast cancer among North Indian Population.
