Research Interests

  • Research projects under investigation:
  • 1. Molecular mechanisms underlying learning-dependent modulation of ingestive behavior. Main goal of this project is to understand the complete mechanisms of the molecular events (e.g. networks of genes) in the brain (e.g. networks of neurons) that underlie hedonic coding, which will make it possible to pharmacologically increase the palatability of less caloric dense foods (e.g. low sugar/low fat).
  • 2. Ventricular and electrical remodeling of heart under hyperoxia-induced stress or metabolic disorder such as Diabetes.
  • 3. Establishing Pharmacogenomics for the FDA approved drugs and implication of personalized medicine for better patient outcome.
