Area of specialization/awards/achievements:
 

My laboratory's focus is on studying the developmental roles and regulation of the non-coding hsr-omega, heat shock and a few other novel genes in Drosophila, using genetic, cell biological, molecular and recombinant DNA approaches. Roles of these genes in modulating apoptosis and neurodegeneration in Drosophila models of human diseases and cellular effects of certain Ayurvedic formulations using fly model are also being studied.
