Research Interests

My research activities are focused on testing compounds from both synthetic and natural origin for the management of Pain, Inflammation, Pyrexia, Ulcerogenicity, Alzheimer, Depression, Anxiety, Dependence, Tolerance, and Vomiting.

Research is in progress in the area of neuropathy where the pathological condition is induced in rat model with streptozotocin/cisplatin. The pain models of allodynia and vulvodynia associated with diabetes are developed and the compounds of interest are tested for effectiveness in these pain conditions with the help of von Frey hairs. Research is also in progress both at the preclinical levels for testing newly in Alzheimer disease.

 

Biochemical and neurotransmitters studies are conducted for correlating behavioral findings and elucidation of the mechanism of action of compounds of interest.
