|Present||Assistant Professor, Molloy College ‐ Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Studies|
Self-motivated, enthusiastic, and highly analytical professional with strong educational foundation and comprehensive knowledge in pharmacology, combined with extensive experience in teaching, planning, executing, and analyzing hypothesis-driven pre-clinical as well as clinical studies in the field of diabetes and cardiovascular research., and My research interest is to investigate the novel mechanism of L-PGDS on atherosclerosis and insulin resistance using In-vitro as well as In-vivo models. Specifically, byproduct of L-PGDS, PGD2 is speculated to have beneficial effects on cardiovascular as well as metabolic disorders like atherosclerosis, insulin resistance etc.
